I have the same set up in my motor home and when I was out last year my gas alarm went off in the middle of the night. I traced it down to the converter over chargind the coach batteries. Had the converter changed out and now I very seldem have to put any water in them. My guess is your converter is over charging the batteries.

I may just replace the 8D's with 8 wet cell GC-2' and add mineral oil to them. Most of the benefits of an AGM and considerably less cost although I would have to rewire the bay for them
