Time for new house batteries--suggestions?
Firstly, our situation:
We have 4 ea Interstate 6V flooded batts, been installed about 5 yrs or so. When at home, moho is plugged in 24/7 on a 50A circuit to keep everything charged and refer cold for any sudden urges to hit the road.
I converted our Norcold 1201LRIM to JC Refrigeration's 12V compressor cooling unit. Our model refer requires their double 12V compressor setup, one for the refer, one for the freezer and it is working very well.
We don't boondock very often but it can be for a few days to a week at a time.
The longer stays are usually planned and I carry a Honda2000I genset to keep batteries up when needed. The onboard Onan genset we'll use if we need a/c or additional heating. This practice has worked well for us especially when we are at Quartzsite for 10 days at a time next to our favorite saguaros.
I'm not interested in LIFPO batteries because my inverter is not that old and will only do flooded and agm. But, I want to go 4 ea 6V AGM and am looking them all up. Most of the reviews on 6V AGM's are are dated a couple of years, so I'm looking for some reviews on the available 6V AGMs that are available in todays market that members have used and like. Also, any suggestions on what minimum amp hours I should be looking for in a 6VAGM?
Thank you. Barry
