Just curious.......AGM batteries as starting batteries for a diesel ?? Just when I think I understand something, another surprise.
It does seem that you would have some system for bi-directional charging. Someone with a similar coach will jump in.

The following posts, links and pictures explain the Bird System if you have one.
First picture is of a DP set up and larger picture is of one in gas coach.
If you have a Bird System all charging of both house and chassis batteries will be controlled by the Bird unit.

If you need parts this link will get you there.

Hell Yeah, These Batteries are Serious Performers, I run them in everything I own that they are available for.

Thanks.

Can any one tell me where the power converter is located in a 2014.5 Thor Challenger? My shoreline connection is not keeping the coach batteries charged and I suspect a blown fuse but I can't locate the power converter. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
