If you have a 3 stage regulartor, the batteries will charge much more efficently. Nothing wrong with adding AH if you can keep it charged. With more amp hours, you are drawing down less of your total available, so the batteries won't get as low. Usually better to have more of something than less! Especially if you plan to add more toys. That's my understanding of it. But I'm no expert.
