Camping is now a pretty generic term. It can mean anything from being in a tent, miles from the next person, to a Motor Coach in a Resort RV Park. "Boondocking" just specifies a type of camping. When you are boondocking, you are also camping, but when you are camping, you may not be boondocking. lol
Our camping experience has been a progression. My next step has been installing LED lighting, so I have also been following the other thread. If I can lesson my electrical usage, then my batteries will obviously last even longer, but ultimately I am there to have an enjoyable time, so I am not going to make electrical monitoring the focus of our camping.
Although AGMs have advantages, by their own ratings they will not last as long as the wet cells I am using. I considered many options before I made my decision and they have worked well. Battery technology is continuing to improve and they may not always be the choice I would make, but I am still satisfied with them.
I just finished replacing the OEM battery in the Power Wagon. I selected a Sears DieHard Platinum P-2 which ia an AGM. It seemed the best choice for the application.
