I have 2 Odessey AGM batteries...I have had nothing but good things to say about them. 


For us the fact that they hold their charge much better over the winter means I can leave them aboard and with a small 5 watt solar panel I can keep them fully able.


The big bonus is they are safer and won't gas off. I sleep better knowing that.

Can you share the thinking behind the raised edge that follows the base of the bunks?  Originally, I assumed that that plank followed the longitudinal that makes up the settee base, but looking at the panels in picture 1, it is intentional and a raised edge in a flat sole panel.  





I think you'll find that's just an illusion created by the sunshine on the edge of the panel. It appears to be flat when you look at earlier pics.


I see the raised edge under the shelves on either side. I suspect that stops stuff from sliding out from under...good idea!

If it made a noise like mine did I'm surprised you didn't have to pry him off the overhead with a spatula.

I doubt this is a dangerous thing, and ultimately it's my fault, they were past renewal date (bad owner!!)...it would be a bit surprising to have one go off while wearing.


I guess better that than not to go off at all.
