Solar questions

Hello Streamers,
Am about to leave for five weeks of travel away from the mother ship after three months of living onboard with my ever-patient spouse.
I know from past experience that leaving the rig plugged into shore power is a bad idea.
My question is, if I leave the trailer on “store” will the solar panels still charge the batteries or is a trickle charger recommended?
Thanks in advance for sharing your expertise.
Zig

I'm not sure how your trailer is wired, but in my 2020 International the solar panels will continue to charge the batteries when power switch is set to "store".

Concur with Dennis. On my 2019 FC27, the solar panels continue to keep the batteries charged on "store"...a nice feature.

Unless you store the trailer in a barn!

Thanks so much. Nice feature. Sorry, I should have mentioned we have a 2019 25’ International.
