I know the cost is higher but I'm surprised more folks don't go 6V AGM. They don't need venting or maintenance and my Lifeline units have outperformed any flooded battery I ever used.

Depends on size Bob. Lifeline does lots of options for AGM's. I have the 4CT's currently and considered adding a second pair in the basement. However, I never seem to dry camp long enough to run them down. Solar and genset seem to top them up as needed. On my last rig I had more room so I had one of the 8D 12V's. Almost 160# for the one! There was no removing that big fella for the off season... Here is there page with all your options.

I always thought the hot setup would be six 2V's putting out 900 AH!

All my batterys are AGM as for the tongue weight did not make much of a difference on my truck I have a Ford super duty F250 with airbags and I still only put 25 pounds of air in my airbags and everything sits level
