I think wet cells are much better than AGMs. Yes, they sometimes spill some acid but AGMs don't last nearly as long. About half the service life and they cost much more. Also you cant equalize AGMs with a smart charger to extend battery life like you can with wet cells. Just clean out that compartment and keep the cells topped off and youll be much better off. The best battery brand is Trojan. Interstate is mediocre.

Replacement will be residential. Shopping for a counter depth that will fit.

Residential is fine, that's what I have. However, you will need a very large battery bank to keep it going if its electrical. They do make residential gas too. A small battery bank will not power a residential electrical refer very long. Calculate your amperage, especially if you dry camp.

When I was first married and living in Desbarats Ontario we had ISTR an Inglis refrigerator because we lived way in the boonies and the electrical power was interrupted all the time.


Oops, I should press send quicker. I now see the answer posted.

DC and AC voltage meters for my RV to monitor 12VDC and 115VAC voltages. Can easily monitor DC battery storage/charging voltages and AC voltage from Shore/Generator power. Also bought a DC/USB charger for charging my Smart Phones and Tablet. The DC devices use the Cigarette Lighter socket and the AC monitor plugs into the wall socket in galley. I feel better knowing what my voltage levels are.

Bought some miscellaneous plumbing supplies as the connection to city water broke on the inside of the camper. Fortunately, I discovered it not by hooking up to water, but by turning on the water pump and realizing there was problem when it didn't shut off after a few seconds.

I also got a Shurflo accumulator that I need to install, maybe tomorrow.
