Solar panel question

Anyone using a solar panel to trickle charge your batteries? What type of battery with what type of solar panel works best? Any tips on setup?

Thanks

This is my next modification to our 32BHDS. I have seen very inexpensive solar trickle chargers at auto parts stores. Like $25 - $50. Living in Phoenix, AZ, I would love our sun to keep my battery ready to go.

I suppose if you are just wanting to maintain your battery while in storage that you could probably find many packaged options. If you're planning to use solar though to recharge batteries for extended boondocking, then you're in to a whole different setup.
