absorbed glass mat.
The cable / wire gauge has to be sized properly to match the length of the run... go to far on too light a gauge and you won't charge them properly... that is why the TV cannot charge a trailers batteries... too much voltage drop. AGMs can be damaged by charging at too high a rate, which isn't a problem since nearly all our rigs stay plugged in all the time. What I don't like about a sealed battery is you can't check with a hydrometer, which is the only way you know how the battery is doing and if equalization is needed and they are expensive. AGMs are a viable option if the positioning or location prevents normal maintenance or if they can't sit bottom down... or in the case of the OP, they are free!
