This is encouraging. Out trailer is new (Late November purchase straight from the factory to the dealer) as is the batteries. We use the trailer about every 3-4 weeks and then in storage outside with no way to charge and no solar power. Heading out this weekend after 4 weeks. Battery monitor (same monitor for holding tanks) shows about 5/8 full. I stop by once or twice a week and turn the batter to "use" for about an hour and use the fan and maybe a light or two. I guess I'm worried about running the battery too low. I don't have a generator yet, but have been thinking about charging the batteries every could weeks to keep them at a higher level. Make sense, or not worry about letting it run down to where it is now, then recharging as we use it once a month?
