Let's calm down.... our points have been made and it is up to the OP to determine what method better meets their camping lifestyle.

We only can post our thoughts/facts...

Do you have any recommendations for what brand and models to buy?
I had a friend give me a solar battery charger and it is working but very slow because it does not have but 2.5 Watts. Ordered a new 10W for 12 v system and this should keep my house battery up to par. Will let you know once I have it installed

You should probably start a new thread

Necro-posting is cool too, but this thread is older than 2 of my dogs.
