Kind of a side note -- my battery box will only hold one 12V class 27 battery. Can I build/buy/install a new vented battery box somehow? Perhaps in the basement up front? Or can I use AGM batteries and just not vent them? Thank You!

You can use the AGM design batteries without venting them .
Over time I have converted to AGM batteries for the cars , TT , and boat .
The reasons why are given in detail in wikipedia .
The cheapest AGM design that I have found are Exide EDGE AGM batteries from BiMart for $ 140 each .
They have a marine / rv style and about 10 auto fitments .
The EDGE is 100 % replacement guarantee for 4 years in automotive styles .
Group 78 is the side post GM for my duramax but I use that Grp 78 in my boat also .
It takes a 5 /16 standard bolt and allows me to connect the additional Marine gadgets to the 78 side posts .
