Any issues with switching to AGM batteries?

It's time to replace my batteries. I have seen mention that switching from Lead/Acid to maintenance free AGM's may have charging implications. Has anyone swapped, and is there anything that must be changed in the charging system? We have a 2004 National Sea Breeze.

Not the saw brand coach but I had no issues doing this with my Winnebago.

No issues.

If you have an inverter/charger, look in the manual for optimum settings for AGM batteries.

Just did it, but both my solar controller and main battery charger are AGM compatible.
