I'd agree, the battery tender draws no amps and monitors the battery charge.
Since I've used them for my motorcycles I've not had to replace a battery for years.
Prior to this the battery came out of the bike etc. etc. and charging them once or twice a winter just didn't do it.
I'll try a tender...

There a lot of great winterizing tips here though I think it would also be better if you check for any drafty windows in your trailer as they can bring in a lot of unwanted cold winds into the trailer.Here is a blog that mentions some tips to check and fix drafty windows

Like the year we (pre-Escape) flew to Vegas, rented a camper van, and spent from mid-Dec to mid-Jan mostly around Tucson, and had frost on the inside of the camper windows on 22 out of 28 mornings!

Anyway, we've had a few frosty nights here and I figured it's high time I winterized -- sooo glad this thread is pinned! We were lucky last winter, I never got a round tuit.

Thank you! One can never have enough of these!

Between your gift, and the threat of -7C overnight temps in a few days, Tumbleweed has been properly winterized & put to bed. Bwaahh! The good news is, it's easy enough to undo!
