2 Amp Battery Charger

I have a friend that uses one of these low amp (and very low priced) battery chargersClick image for larger version

ID:	265573 to keep his vacation home's vehicle charged while they are away. It is connected to the car's battery for up to 3 months at a time. The battery stays charged for immediate use when they are using the home. Would this type of charger be ok to leave on my 2015 27' International while it is in storage? My concern is how it might affect the converter.

It won't affect the converter.

Be sure there is sufficient electrolyte in the batteries, add distilled water if needed, before and after using. A 2A charger will cause some loss of water.

I've never been sure of the fire safety of those things. I had one once on a car I rarely drove, but I added a fuse to the DC side of it.
