This is a picture of the batteries in my 2013 Arctic Fox. They're Interstate Batteries, labeled "GC2-XHD-UT", 232Ah. They've been good batteries, but they're totally dead now. They're also a major PIA to get to for maintenance. Therefore, I'm trying to find 6V AGM maintenance-free batteries that are the same dimensions so they'll fit in my battery boxes (LWD ~10 x 7 1/4 x 9 1/2 inches.) I haven't had any luck finding them. Wondering if anyone has suggestions?

I'd try a Golf Cart dealer - if they don't carry 'em, might know where to get 'em.

Sams Club and Costco both carry GC2 AGM batteries ... Sams has the Duracell label made by East Penn DEKA ... Costco different label, same battery.

The batts in the boxes now are 10.12 inches and some GC2s are 10.3, but you say 10 inches, so is that accurate? GC2s should be close to the same footprint.

Batteries Plus Bulbs in San Antonio. Duracell 6v. Same battery as Sam's Club if you don't have one.

usually can save 10% by purchasing and paying online and picking up at store.

Change to 12V, just be sure to connect them in parallel instead of series. At any good Auto parts store. You will need a couple of jumper cables.

Costco is Interstate, NOT the same. Interstate are now made in Mexico and are NOT what they used to be.

Anything made by East Penn is top quality. Deka is one label and many others.

Not where I live ! GC2, yes. GC2-AGM, no.

Even if you do find them, they are a lot more expensive !
