Thanks Lew. Good info and very useful.

We're odd ducks. We've had our trailer 2 years, and have done LOTS of trips, but this was the first boondocking we've done. We're trying to see if this is something we want more of or less of. We have no charger or genny. I'd say we were pretty well underprepared! Ha Ha. I figured the car would charge us right back up when we moved to the second site.

Yes, I have the stock AS "burner".

Rodster - that's a good looking unit. Happy with it? I came across this one today also: PowerMax Boondocker Converters

Do I dare assume that if you have a nice 3-stage converter and you plug in a genny, the world is good? Or, are there yet more lessons to learn?

Always something new to learn.

That would work. It's what I call the 'quick and dirty' solution boondocking battery maintenance
