No trickle charger and leave in the trailer (trailer on starage lot about 8 miles away).
I live in Colorado, so temperature may get down to -20 degrees f once in awhile. Wayne
Did you have to recharge it in the spring?

Usually by the time I drag it home and plug it in a day while we are getting ready for the next trip, its ready to go. Wayne

And I actually bought it at Walmart too. Hooked it up to a 15 watt solar charger while dry camping. Seemed to charge o. k. the first day, then the battery crapped out, so really didn't get a feel as to how much the solar would add. This year dry camping, the solar extended usage to at least 4 days (problems with water leaks, running front and back electric jacks up and down as had to hook up and drive to get more water). My sister died so had to leave, so don't know how long it would have coaxed the batteries. Wayne
