Adding a battery to our Precept, advice?

Hey there. My wife and I are looking to add some AHs to our coach. We currently have 2 12v Lead acid batteries in the stock battery tray out side of the coach. We would like to add an AGM battery to the mix. There is a location under our bed for this addition. AGM batteries are safe to be used inside since they are sealed and do not give off the gases that the other batteries do.

Question is, what is the best way to tie this battery into the mix? We have read in other places that the AGMs are enough like the standard lead acid batteries that the charger would be just fine to manage the addition. We have an inverter installed under our bed that can be used to add this battery to the parallel battery installation. Please help us get this right if you have any advice.

I have a '16 Precept 35S and we boondock quite frequently. I wouldn't put the battery under my bed but that's just the electrician in me talking. I'll post some photo's of what I did.

FYI, there is a Jayco Precept Facebook page that gets quite a bit of traffic and great folks with excellent information frequent the site.
