Thankyou for your help on deciding what brand of batteries for my dual batt system . I am going to go with Fullriver HGL9012A AGMs . $236 each x 2 . I want them for occasional winching . I have a simple solonoid . I dont have a fridge . I dont run anything from accessories position when stationary . Would these batteries be ok .

Have a look at the Gee-Tek site and check out their prices. They don't list a 90 ah AGM but their HGL100-12B is $190.81 plus GST plus delivery. I'm not sure about 2 Deep Cycle Batteries. You may need a cranking battery as well.
cheers

Not quite there yet Bill.The 100ah won't fit and the webb site only lists the 90ah gell battery. Need to contact them direct re the 90ah AGM battery. Will do it tomorrow and then order from there.

I was going to buy a Fullriver but after reading the specs and
comparing it to the Concorde(Sun-Xtender) as sold by BP Solar I
decided to spend the extra $100 on the Sun-xtender.
(Concorde battery Corp make Lifeline, Sun-xtender and Chairman.
There batteries are use in military aircraft to electric wheelchairs)

This is straight out of the spec sheets:-
Fullriver HGL series at 30%DOD has a cycle life of 1200 cycles.
Fullriver DC series at 30%DOD has a cycle life of 1500 cycles.
Sun-xtender at 30%DOD has a cycle life of 3500 cycles.

Fullriver HGL series at 50%DOD has a cycle life of 500 cycles.
Fullriver DC series at 50%DOD has a cycle life of 700 cycles.
Sun-xtender at 50%DOD has a cycle life of 2000 cycles.

So from the specs the Sun-xtender at 50%DOD still has a greater
cycle life than the Fullriver at 30%DOD.

I don't understand why you would run a winch off an auxiliary battery.

The cranking battery should be fine for this purpose. Just make sure the engine is running when activating the winch.
