Your converter is a three stage converter so you should be okay leaving power applied all winter and forget about the Battery Tender. When the battery is fully charged it goes into float mode. It would probably be a good idea to check the water level every month or so.

Agreed...maybe just for charging now, but you'll be able to do a little more if you decide to (I wouldn't run the AC off of that for that long a run, but fans, radio, and lights will be no problem).

You ought to be able to just leave it plugged in, but I'd still check it every once in a while to make sure it's not over charging. For what you'll be paying for cords, I'd think about just bringing the battery somewhere closer and just getting a smart charger and leave it plugged in.

Yep...use the battery disconnect if you have one or just disconnect the cables when not in use. That would require an external charger though. Again, not a bad option as you can use them on any battery you have (I rotate mine between motorcycle and trailer every month or so.)

I went with the Rigid 100FT, 10 gauge. I think it was a good investment! Got the TT all hooked up and charging.
