Cam, what she has MIGHT work. If the shore charger is relatively low power (as it is) with a safe float voltage (13.4 usually is) then it probably would work with the AGMs.
Ditto the Volvo alternator with internal regulator: Not efficient, but probably clamped below 14.4 volts and most AGMs will be happy with that these days.
Most, might...these are not the best of criteria. But if the specs for the alternator and charger match the specs for the Odyssey charging, it could work. Not having to play with wet acid is a good thing. Obviously, adding an external regulator to the alternator, and really properly controlling the charging, would be better for any kind of battery.
But with the little information we have...it might just work, don't you think?
