One more year later with another update.

The Sam's Club 6V AGM batteries I installed in April 2015 continue to perform like new.  This has been one of my best modifications.  I won't ever go back to 12V or wet acid again.  Not just maintenance free and performing better, but also projected to be cheaper in the long run.

Reporting in 4.5 years since the 6V AGM installation and all continues to be great.  The pair of 6V AGM batteries from Sam's Club still perform like new.  They also hold their charge so much better in times of storage.  Given our previous two pairs of 12V lead acid batteries provided only 2 good years each, we are past the break-even point in the investment.
