My 2012 2650 battery box is also vented. I have to replace the batteries due to the dealer not turning the batt disconnect off while it sat for a week with the interior lights on. Anyway, my question: when I put AGM batteries in my larger DP I had to change the settings on my charge controller to the AGM setting. I was thinking of putting them in my current unit but the Converter / Charger doesn't seem to have any special AGM charge settings. Can I still use AGM batteries?

Tom,

Yes, you can use the AGMs. A lot of misinformation on the subject is due to people confusing AGMs and Gel Cells. Gel cells require different charging profiles.

In years past, some AGMs required different charging profiles too. But now they are plug and play. Especially with your stock converter and undersized cabling, which I bet you'd find rarely delivers more than 14.2v anyway. If you install solar, the better solar charge controllers are more aggressive, and in that case you'll want to make sure the controller offers a profile selection that will not over-volt your AGM.

I have a 2013 3010DS and the battery under the step is a standard lead acid battery.
