I've had the same rig for many years with a four 6V battery bank. First batteries lasted 8 years, changed the second batteries after 6 years and the newest are still fine. I have never even heard of someone losing a cell in good quality (or other wise) flooded 6 volt battery. Its just not something to normally make decisions on. Don't forget to check fluid levels, especially when being plugged into 120 volts, which I assume you are, if not hooked into solar power. Try to keep ussage to 50% or above, with 6V. deep cycle golf-cart style batteries. All my batteries were bought in the south. As the 6-Volt battery has only three cells, are the chances of cell failure less?

I think golf cart batteries are tougher than any other mass produced type simply because they have to be. Personally, I prefer something that's maintenance free, and most GC batteries do require some hands on once in a while. So, for me, it's 12V maintenance free or AGMs wherever possible. Preferably deep cycle, both for chassis and coach. Just my personal preference, and what I'm used to.
