Ah okay. I was responding to the earlier post from Cry42 "House batteries only charge when on Shore Power or with the engine running.".
I noticed a 3rd-party trickle charger mounted to the bottom of my engine compartment, now I understand why it's there (to charge the chassis batteries when plugged in to shore power).
What is the best plan for maintaining my batteries while the coach is in outdoor storage without access to power (other than the solar panel on the roof I guess)?
I'm thinking of pulling the coach battery and putting it on a maintainer in my garage on a shelf, and leaving the chassis batteries in place with the disconnect "off" in the engine compartment. But is that enough to keep them from draining over 3-6 months on non use?
I also have a 130w portable solar panel that I could connect to the chassis batteries to give them a more consistent, if weak, trickle charge.
