Default Dry storage

Looking for advice from anyone who stores their boat on a dry rack at a marina. What do most people do to keep batteries charged? We have 2 onboard chargers for house batteries and for trolling motor batteries.

Onboard DC/DC charger will be your best bet. I am installing a Yandina TrollBridge 36 to charge 3 trolling motor batteries as soon as I receive it. Stealth I, Minn Kota and PowerPole also make onboard chargers with PowerPole being the most expensive choice.

I’ve never had dry storage with access to an outlet. Typically I just turn the battery off and use it as frequently as possible. If it’s been a few months, I might have it moved to a wash rack and charge them while cleaning/working on it.

Same here. Frequent use. Occasional charging with the onboard charger while working on it on a wash rack. AGMs all around. They seem to deliver on the promise of low self-discharge.

Never had an issue as well. If on Lower level there usually is an extension you can use. I never had an issue
