Because the cost is low, ~$80 each, I've decided to go with a five year replacement cycle instead of trying to see how long they will last.

Good to know, I actually bought the pendant but have not installed it yet!

That is cheap!!!

Right now I have the two 12volt 125 aH LifeLines which are very $$ but for $80 a pop four 6V Interstates is cheap!

Thanks, sounds like a move to 4 cheap 6V batteries and a Solar panel and charger are in my future...

Thanks everyone. The converter manufacturer finally answered my question. The PD9200 works well on AGM. The tech support guy was shocked that their specs did not mention it. I figured it had to because it's a pretty high tech gadget with a microprocessor. It has three different charge modes and voltages, automatically selected based on battery state. 14.4, 13.6 and 13.2. They call them Boost, Normal and Storage modes respectively. Now I just need to get rid of these Napa batteries and get some deep cycles that can power an RV inverter all night.

By the way, my OEM batteries are Napa 24DCM (Napa No. 8240N)
