I just aquired an almost new MK315D (three bank)charger. I have downloaded the installation manual and I have a question. On the face of the charger it states that it can be used on flooded and AGM batteries. In the installation manual, is says only flooded?
Any ideas which is correct, and I was wanting to charge my two AGM trolling motor batteries and one flooded starting battery. Will this work, or damage the batteries or charger?

Thanks for any help

Eric

I have 3 AGM batteries in mine and it works flawlessly! Had it installed now for about 6 months. I thought I saw in the manual you shouldn't mix batter types too.

The charging rates and characteristics are different for the different type batteries, so whatever type the chaarger is set for, the other won't charge properly and it's possible to cause battery damage.
