    Battery

    Hi Folks,

    Question: Is the battery in the 1330's AGM? If not. Does anyone make an AGM battery the same size, capacity, etc for the RTL 1330?

    Thank's in advance for any advice.

    Johnny.

    Thank's to All.

    Since I've read the replies I won't get too worried about the PSSSST.
    Should note: With the heat wave my garage is running in the mid 90's. Don't know if that had anything to do with it.
