    Eagle Picher Carefree is what I am using in my 56FL. It is a sealed battery that works well. A stock 3 brush generator will overcharge it and cause it to fail. Once I converted to 2 brush, all is well.

    But they are not being made anymore, and the company that was the importer of them told me the shelf life of a new one is 2 years.

    Using this battery instead of EP cause found the same, EP discontinued their battery in DEC 2018. It is a Power Sonic model PS 6120 FP. This is a 13 amp battery too. Found out charge rate of generator is 4 amp and 4 amp will cause a shorter life due to excessive charge rate, thus the question of which AGM battery is best. Fits into a 4" X 4" poly hollow fence post cut to fit into the horse shoe oil tank but needs help with foam to keep the battery in place while in the space for the battery. Had to bend the hot tab backward and used heat shrink tubed covered smallest sized Thomas Betts lugs from Lowes hardware.
