2017 Basecamp concerns

We purchased our Basecamp last summer. It does beat tent camping. We’re currently storing it in a rental unit for the winter. There are no electrical plugins. Do I need to be concerned about battery life? The only thing on is the gas sensor. The last time I checked the battery it showed a 9 on the indicator vs a 12 through the summer when solar panel was charging it. Also this unit has a led lighting system in it with a remote control unit that quit working. Every time we turn the power on we get a blue glow from back in the seating area. Tried replacing the battery in the remote, but can’t get it to work and can find an on/off switch in the unit. Does anyone have experience with this.

Welcome Aboard 👍

9v is not good, the batt needs to be fully charged, rested and tested. Remove & test ASAP during storage. Once charged leave it disconnected in the AS.
Plan on replacing it just in case. Interstate battery store or NAPA can test it after it's charged. A small charger is a good investment.

Good Luck..
