Jimmy- Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM) batteries are not exactly dry, but the acid is absorbed into the mats. This also allows them to pack more lead plates into the same size case, hence the heavy weight. This also gives the advantage of more cranking and reserve power from the same size case, and AGM batteries cannot leak. I just put a new AGM battery in my 575M, an Interstate MT7-34R, probably not available where you are, but any of the major companies can provide a good AGM that will fit and sounds like you found one. I had a week-long trip that got extended a week and had no maintainer on the battery. No sweat, 2 weeks later, not even a hesitation and she started right up.

Every day I look around, and if nobody is shooting at me, it is a pretty good day.
