What brand/Model battery you guys switching or have switched too? I'm still running stock batteries and would like to upgrade since mine are not performing as well. Thanks!

I got the VMAXX 6v AGM and used AGM2 setting in firefly and loved them!

There is a touchscreen control for the entire coach that also can be operated via an app with similar controls on a phone. The digital touchscreen display has all the settings to adjust the charger/inverter, etc. This is made by Firefly (the company). Many brand coaches use this system.

If the installed AH of the new batteries is different than the flooded cells, then Firefly needs to be changed for that, too. Go to Inverter/Charger Settings under the DC touchpad. under "I/C Batt Option" you will see the "Battery Type" and "Battery Amp Hours" selectors. Select the AH of the new AGMs along with the AGM setting.

If the AH of the new batteries is different from the OEM batteries, that will need to be changed in Firefly, too. Select "DC" on the touch screen, then "Inverter/Charger Settings", "I/C Batt. Options", then adjust the AH and the battery type.

Now the Inverter/Charger will automatically change the charging profile for your new batteries.

Hard to beat Lifelines. Cost a bit more, but 'top of the line'. They also make a 300AH AGM with the same footprint as the OEM 200 AH GC2 battery, but it is about 3" taller. If your compartment can handle it, they are a big boost in AH.
