Plus you should always carry an adapter with you because you never know what kind of power situation you will come across.
I agree but it was mentioned that he does not like adapters. I always use my 30 to 50 adapter, most of the 30 amp CG outlets are old and worn...

Your P.D charge controller will do the job and better than any trickle charger. It is made to maintain your batteries with out cooking them. I got 7 years out of my batteries in my last rig with a P.D charge controller and had my rig plugged in 24/7. The batteries were still good but didn't want chance failure to happen on the road.

Or, for only a month at a time, you could just totally disconnect the batteries. We have 2 Golf Cart batteries that are 9 years old. Still about 95% of new capacity. We also use our rig about once a month. Once home, I make sure the batteries are fully charged by running an extension cord. Then, I just disconnect them from all camper loads/draws with a battery disconnect switch. They will be fine sitting disconnected for a month.
