Converter/Charger while in storage.

It's getting close to preparing my 21ft. Sovereign for Winter storage. One of the issues that all of us face is how to handle our batteries. Last year I had my indoor storage facillity remove the batteries and trickle charge them for me during the winter. Sounds good right? Wrong! They were not charged properly during the time in storage. As a result I ended up replacing both of them last spring. This fall I have a new plan. Earlier this year I replaced my humming Univolt with a new IOTA Converter/Charger with built in smart-charge capability. This quiet 3 stage unit is designed to be left plugged in all the time, according to IOTA's tech support people. The IOTA is a very capable charger/converter, but it also functions in the same way as a Battery-Tender float charger. A microprocessor controls the amount of charge going to the batteries, never overcharging them. Of course, batteries must be in good condition to start with! I am anxious to see how this works out over the winter. Has anyone had experience with this IOTA unit? Juergen
