Any recommendations- Have older AGM (16) batteries (2) are not in the best shape- should I just switch all out to Trojan 105T?

If I were not to use all the extra electric heaters, windlass etc. could I get by with 8 batteries instead of 16?

The only advice I can offer is that if you are going to replace any of the batteries, you should probably replace them all.

Thanks!  I learned Duffy is now using US battery 2200 series, any thoughts if I replace the old 16 AGM batteries I have.  They said Trojan has gone through some changes and harder to get. I noticed I can not get them now in Northern New England

Check for fit before buying.  If you have that beautiful single point water addition system, make sure it fits as well.

Oops.  Just noticed you're replacing AGM's.  Forget the comment about the single point system.
