Thinking about switching over to AGM batteries & know nothing about what I should know & do. I tried to do online research but have a hard time distinguishing between a sales pitch & an honest review/opinion as I know nothing about the subject.I did find that one important point is to keep the batteries charged while in storage. As I generally put it in storage from Nov to April. Cannot keep on our property due to our beloved HOA, so it is offsite with no electric available. Which brings me to a solar battery tender. These are effective??? Spending this kind of money on batteries, don't want them going south the first year. Since our coach is offsite can I use a solar tender discretely with no holes drilled, etc. I'd like to place the solar panel in the cab windshield & run the cables to the batteries. Does this even sound feasible?And I guess solar battery tenders, like the batteries themselves, vary in price from one end of the spectrum to the other. And the higher the price isn't always the better.Oh, where to start? Then there is always the consideration of total cost and what I can afford. But naturally I want the best for the least cost.Any thoughts?
Disconnecting house batteries: does the battery on/off switch by the coach door do the same thing? Or is a physical dismantle of the cables required?
Since you have no solar panels, your best option is to disconnect both your house batteries and engine battery. They should be fine and just need charging after reconnecting.
