I agree with GeneT thats exactly what we do. Its amazing a little 5 watt solar plate can keep our 2 batteries topped off in the week we are not there.

I have the same wing nut GeneT. I disconnected it a few weeks ago. Are the solar plates expensive? Can they be left on a battery over the winter to keep up the charge without doing damage? Thank you.

We don't disconnect the battery...however with power tongue jack and stabilizers we turn the power off to those (so they won't get tampered with) by using the switch here...Im sure Harbour Freight has the same thing available...dont need to anything fancy for off / on task..

Thanks Gas Mans. I pull the fuse for our tongue jack, but I could not find the stabilizer power source. Where is yours?

Also, the antenna booster switch that has a small push button and an indicator light will, in time run down the battery. Randy

We simply keep it plugged in when at home to keep the battery charged.

stabilizer power is from the main panel...on ours it's the last 12v fuse on the right bank of fuses. It's a pain to get to and run wires from becasue there is of course 110v and 12v in close proximity... We did the fuse thing for a while, but one trip I couldn't remember where I'd put it... had tons of spares, luckily!
