battery on a122 hard side

What is best way to keep battery charged? Camper is stored in another location from home. Should I remove battery everytime and bring home and keep it on a charger? If so, recommendations for good battery charger. Thanks!

Just plug the shore cord into a home outlet, using a 30 to 15 amp adapter.
The converter will do what it's supposed to do,keep the battery charged.
IF you don't have shore power available, install a battery disconnect switch.

Unless you disconnect the battery between trips it'll be dead in about 2 weeks from the LP detector and radio memory siphoning off current. You can disconnect with tools. Just remove the wire from the Negative battery terminal. Or to avoid that hassle fit a marine power switch on the Negative side, between the battery and trailer frame.

Or buy a cheap solar panel to hook to it (if the storage space is secure and your not afraid of someone walking off with it). It should provide enough to keep the parasitic electrical items from draining the battery.
