Have a 2012 with the original 7355 converter and size 24 Interstate batteries. I leave the unit plugged in and "in use" (do not place the switch in Store mode) all the time. Batteries going strong and have only added a bit of distilled water to each battery on two occasions. For the lead acid batteries, I can't see how I could do any better.

Does anyone know if the PD4655 Converter will charge AGM batteries? I just replaced the factory unit and the PD doesn't seem to change from the normal mode. Output is 13.8 V at the converter output and batteries. It has run for over 24 hours with no charge state change.

It certainly will charge AGMs and I'm on my 11th year with a pair of group 27 Lifelines and a PD converter in a Lance TC. The normal mode is 13.6 give or take a 10th or so and the boost mode target is 14.4 VDC. It will not boost necessarily unless it determines your batteries are ready for a 4 hour boost. Usually after a drive to a new location and plugging back into shore power you will see boost but not always. You can always over ride and hit the boost button. Just make sure you have a way to know when you are fully charged and not let it sit there too long for the sake of it. Best to leave it in the automatic mode but there are times when over riding makes sense. Hopefully you have the remote so you can monitor it from the outside of the panel when you walk into your Airstream.
