Mate of mine works for Mercedes and says he can get Hopecke Deep Cycle Batteries from Germany. Has anyone heard of them before? He assures me they are the Ducks Nuts. 100amp for $235.

Hopecke batteries are the dux nuts! They are a widely used in remote area power systems (big solar setups) and have a good name for value and reliability. They also produce a recombination plug for their vented wet cell lead acid batteries 'the AquaGen" unsure if it will fit the smaller 100amp batteries but it locks into the top of the cells and with a catalyst inside captures the gasses escaping the battery during charging converts it back into water and drops it back into the cells, thus decreasing maintainence and reduces the gas emissions (don't know if it comes out for the 100amp) all in all you can't go wrong with the Hopecke unless of course you go for a TROJAN.............

Hey Joe.. Sorry i've taken so long to reply, but from your response do you reckon that Trojan's are any good or not. I can get 100amp d/c Trojan for $240 less 10%. The Hoppecke are $235 for a ( not sure if it's a 85amp or 100amp. Both No.s are printed on the battery.) The bloke I spoke to is going to test it out over Easter on a Waeco etc and see what it actually has in it..
