Look at the number of caps on the top of the battery. Usually 2V per cap..

3 caps is 6V

a U2300 is a real HD 6 volt and there expensive;; much better quality and amperage and warranty than costco
however they should be available for much less than $175 Iam thinking in the 145$ range new number is GC2-XHD-UTL
If your going to do any amount of boon docking buy these ones over the cheapo Costco ones

Make sure when you take them out you know how they are hooked up and which wires are going to the Pos and Neg posts. Take a picture and make a diagram.

On the other hand if you normally camp with shore power you don't really need the best batteries. Two cheaper 6v or even 2 12v batteries may meet your needs, depends on how you use them.

I would suggest getting red tape for the positive and use black tape on the negative wires.
