Pro tip for you battery users out there.. Remove, or at least unhook, the battery when not in use. Check the charge after returning from your trip and if it's low, use a trickle charger to top it up. (And then check your tow vehicle / trailer wiring to find out why it's low!)
Store the battery in a place with minimal temperature changes, ideally out of the sunlight. I keep mine in the garage, but I wish it was air conditioned!
