Solar Battery Tender

Has anyone had any experience with the Solar battery tender. I do not have electricity where I store my MH. I wondered if this might be a good way to go.

Not sure what you're referring to exactly. We had a small panel that mounted atop the forward air conditioner on a Diesel Bounder that worked OK to keep the house batteries up when we weren't using the coach in the summer. It was a very limited charge and needed full sun for as long as possible. If you're thinking of trying to use something that small in the winter (with short, grey, possibly snow covered days), I'd look for something better.

I have 3 panels on my M.H. roof one is about 6"x6" and the other two are about 2'x 4' I also have 4, 6volt batterys that they keep up.
All I have to do is keep the water up.

I had 1- 130 watt panel installed when I first got our rv and the rv spent about 3 months in storage outside and it kept the batteries up just fine with the disconnect switches for the house and engine batteries turned off. But is was stored on the front range of Colorado and there are always a lot more clear sunny days than cloudy ones.
