Hay all,
New to your forum figured I'd ask... I store our Toy Hauler about 2-3 months at a time. In order to keep my batts up, (4 @ 6v) I have to hook up and drag it to a power source about once a month. I am now interested in doing a solar panel. I understand I will still have to top off the water, and if I get a controller panel that will not allow an overcharge all should be good, yes??
With this in mind can I get some feedback on the better units and were to buy. Seems panel construction is an constantly evolving thing I just hate to buy old technology.
Install is not an issue.

Thanks for your time and effort,
Chris

Sounds like a good idea! Just driving out there with a generator isn't going to do much unless your going to stay awhile to get a good charge into the batteries. I'm subscribing to see the replies you get, sorry I can't help. I did find two wires up top on mine that I could use for solar panels so I'm all ears!
