Lots of good advice in this thread.
If you switch back to AGM's, be sure to check the settings for your inverter/charger. AGM's like a lower float charge of 13.2 volts. 13.6 works for flooded but is high for most AGM's.
A true battery disconnect installed near the batteries makes storing AGM's easier. With a complete disconnect, you can leave AGM's unattended for 6 to 12 months.
