The chassis battery is sealed. Not sure if it is an AGM or a SLA type.

I just replaced the two house batteries and the chassis battery. The chassis is the heavy duty sealed Ford battery. The two house batteries are sealed AGM batteries. No more checking any battery water levels. Also put a knife switch on the chassis battery and the house batteries. I open the knife switches when the RV is in storage so the batteries are all physically disconnected from any draw.

We swapped out our cheap OEM house batteries (they would not hold a charge) while in Utah in the fall of 2020 with Interstate AGM's and have been very happy with the performance. Also have a Flow-Rite on the chassis battery and keep that filled up with distilled water (easy).
BTW kudos to Ed once again for your Axis/Vegas manual, this has been a fantastic maintenance source for us for the past four years!
