Default Really (really) Dumb Question

An AGM battery is simply considered a "sealed" battery, right? Not flooded, not gel, and, obviously, not lithium.

Thanks. I got it. For some strange reason I have this reflex to think of the G in AGM as gel as opposed to glass.

When we bought our first Class B in 2006 there wasn't anything provided but wet cell lead acid from the upfitters. Gel and AGMs were being bandied about as replacements and I went the AGM route with my first van then quickly learned single stage chargers were not good on non-maintenance batteries where you couldn't check the water level. Gel quickly disappeared in any discussion I'm aware of.

So, what replacement would you recommend for a 2004 Pleasure Way Lexor...? I actually never use my battery, am always plugged in at CG’s, or if stopped at a rest area or somewhere use my generator..and that will probably not change, so not even sure I need to replace it, but thought I’d jump in and join the “dumb” group!
