My batteries are dead and I cant move the slide to check what charging system I have. I want to replace the lead acid with AGM but need to be sure I can charge them before buying. I almost positive this year/model uses a progressive dynamics PD9200 which can do AGM.

Can anyone confirm if this is the right charger in the 2016 AF 811SB and if that year also had the AGM charging capability?

THANKS!

Run jumper cables between your truck and camper batteries to get the slide or jacks to move.

Even with no battery you should have power from converter if you plug into shore power

I have used an old exide small battery charger on lead acid and deep cycle bats with no problems. Had two settings for deep cycle, regular and two settings for 2 AMP and 10 AMP. Very small and handy. I still have it.

AGM is a lead acid battery so it will function exactly the same with your factory charger. AGM = Absorbent Glass Mat, so the acid is just held in basically a sponge versus being in a liquid state like a regular wet cell lead acid.

Thank you all. I’m not near shore power and do not have access to jump from truck. It’s in storage. Sounds like I’ll be fine so I’ll buy the batteries and replace. Thanks.
