Since the 80s
The inbuilt charger of the EBL99 has a selector switch between standard flooded lead acid (Blei-saure) and Gel (Blei-Gel), so there is no AGM battery charging profile. AGM batteries typically require a higher voltage to fully charge them and avoid long-term deterioration, so I think you'll need a different charger.

A suitable modern smart charger with settable charging profiles is not expensive nowadays, and it's easy to disable the internal charger by just removing a fuse. The one labelled 'Internes Lademodul'. You could feed in the new charger through the 2-way auxiliary charger connection, there's a recent thread on this here:
Alternatively you could go for Gel batteries instead of AGM

Hi Autorouter
Many thanks for that I will think about changing my battery set up to Gel or sealed lead will have to do a bit more research.

Mine had the same set up when I bought it, batteries were completely buggered after a few months use. Changed to Varta 90's still all fine.

Sealed lead acid properly varta ldf90, but I THINK they have been superseded. A pity unless the new version is as good. But if you want really good advice try A&N Caravanservices.

Emailed A and N and Martin advised me to go with Exide ES900 gel batteries thanks for all you import guys

That’s exactly what I was going to suggest, change your charging profile to gel on your charger and the 100w panel will keep them topped up nicely, if you want to spend more then 5-7 days off grid then just try and get more solar on the roof. connect straight to the batteries via the mppt controller…
Connect your batteries like this…😎

Thanks for that I have a cable on order that connects to the MPPT then fits the EBL 99 so it charges the leisure batteries then the engine battery so hopefully if we are parked up and out for the day the solar should keep the engine battery charged once the habitation ones are full

I have approx 240watts solar, 2 exide 85amp GEL (marine type) batteries and the Schaudt charger all through my EBL99 and had no problems in past year or two.
