Most important is to enjoy boondocking but you have to pay to play regardless.
68OVERLANDER - I am pretty obssesive about a lot of things in the rv. But tending to the batts to try getting 8-10 yrs is not much fun, as you say. But I dont neglect them either, like I known a few dealers to do (go figure, dealers ruining new rv batts). And where I live, even if I obsess over it every waking hour, the extreme heat here will kill it way before that. Great to know these best practices from experienced group
