Re: AGM batteries

We did the AGM thing for a while, and then when we left the dock, we couldn't get 3 months out of them. The manufacturer and engineer who installed our electrical system along with Balmar all went over my system and concluded that it must have been a bad batch of batteries. The manufacturer sent us replacement batteries on freight for free. Balmar even replaced our voltage regulator for the alternator. Then after being at anchor for about 6 months, we had problems with the replacement batteries.

We have since went back to wet batteries with no issues.
