I have a leisure battery which I bought two years ago, I do not look after it particularly well, certainly not as well as mentioned in posts above.
It was bought second hand from Ebay(I think) so I don't know the real age etc.
I do keep it charged, topping up aprox once a month, again this is when I remember and the battery will last us for a weeks camp without getting into trouble. I do admit I don't have motor movers or anything really heavy, just lights and water pump, tv and phone chargers....
I paid about £30 to £40 for it so I'm very happy.
You are buying a brand new battery and having problems....
I'm not taking sides about what is happening to your battery but do feel either there is a drain on the battery or your battery is not man enough for the job.
I can not believe, despite what you say, that batteries supplied to you are all faulty or near the end of their useful lives.
Possible ways forward.....
Is there not a code on the batteries that give the age?
Can you not get a battery with a longer guarantee (3 to 5 years perhaps?)
Get and auto electrician to check your drain on the battery and the efficiency of the charging circuits.
