Allegro Bus options

Two options on the web build site I can't seem to get an actual spec on:

Solar (3 or 6) - are they 100w flex panels or? IE 300W or 600 total?

Extended Cycle Batteries - talk about no detail! Are they AGM instead of flooded, higher capacity? certainly unlikely to be LiFePo??

The sale guy I'm working with is... less informed.. than I prefer so I'm asking any of you folks here know the actual answer.

The solar option is 3 or 6 of 180/190w or so panels. 6 is a second string with a second controller. Better to just order prewire - specify two pair of the largest they will do. Then have larger/better system installed aftermarket. Imho.

The extended cycle batteries are 300ah Lifeline AGM. I'd get the standard wet batterues and put the option money towards installing lithium batteries aftermarket. Imho.
