I'm getting ready to change from wet cell batteries to AGM in my 2008 Roadtrek 210 Versatile. My two questions are:

(1) do I need to change the inverter dip switch position from wet cell to gel?

(2) how does one access the inverter in this model of Roadtrek? Where do they put it? All I can see is the inverter switch and nothing more.

Thanks!

AGM is a wet cell.

Yes the switches should be changed to AGM to avoid any equalization.

If your only choices are wet cell and gel then for AGM you want wet cell. If you actually have a setting for AGM then use that.
But, the best thing to do is to look up the exact charging voltages recommended for your particular brand of battery. Then, look up the actual charging voltages that each switch setting will give you and make the closest match you can.
