AGM batteries with Lead Acid Charger

Has anyone had a problem using an existing charging system made for lead acid batteries then replacing lead acid with AGM batteries?
I have a PD 2030 charger from Progressive Dynamics which is designed for lead acid only. (Of course the new design 2130 has the ability to change to one of 3 battery types, but I don't want to pay to upgrade.) I am putting in 4 - 6 volt AGM batteries. BTW the alternator on the engine is OEM and is set for Lead acid as well.
Thanks
