Thanks for the response. Since this is our first foray into dry camping I am taking the charger also. I don't anticipate running on the battery much. Just for stating the ignition processes. Minimal use of lights as we have led lanterns. I will take my charger/starter just for piece of mind. Better to have it then to not and need it...
