Google Maps API V3 placing marker on map using Latitude and Longitude values from a variable

This URL displays a marker on a Google Map:
http://tech.lifespanfitness.com/store-locator.asp?p=19565

This URL does not:
http://tech.lifespanfitness.com/store-locator2.asp?p=19565

The relevant Javascript is shown below, for the two URLs above (respectively). However, there is only one line that is different between them:

position:new google.maps.LatLng(40.33897,-75.98161),
...vs.
position:new google.maps.LatLng(currentlatlng),

In the first, I am hard-coding Latitude and Longitude values. In the second, I am populating them with the variable currentlatlng. The two console.log statements show what these two values are (see screenshot). Of course, in my variable, you have to open the object to see what is inside, and it contains data other than just the Latitude and Longitude... I am guessing that is the problem, but I don't know how to send the API what it is looking for.

So my question is, how can I make the Google Map API display my marker using the value in the currentlatlng variable instead of having to hard code? It seems like I am 99% of the way there, but can't seem to get this to work.

Thank you!

It already is a LatLng so just use the variable.

var marker0=new google.maps.Marker({
                        position: currentlatlng,
                        map:map,
                        title:'Play It Again Sports - Wyomissing'
                  });
