I agree. Two issues are bank capacity compounded by AGMs higher acceptance, when combined with a small OEM (automobile) alternator. imply ends up with an alternator that;s too small for the intended use and that lovely "sucking sound" from a large bank with the AGM's increased ability to absorb amperage.
Can be made to work? Hmm, I don't see how without an external regulator with amp manager or small engine mode.
