I appreciate all the feedback. I am new to solar, yes, but not new to camping and owning a trailer. I am also a woman, so be open to your future posts and don't assume all there is on here is men. Thanks.

When you don't provide even a first name we have to make an educated guess since most on here are men.

Well, most people don't provide their first name here. Username didn't suggest any clues as to the gender, either.

If all you want is preventing battery from dying in longterm storage - not to live offgrid with the battery fed by solar - you only need to unscrew red trailer cable going to the battery. This works for 2, maybe 3 months. For a longer storage you have to put the battery on trickle charger plugged into 110V at home - or get a small solar panel ~25-50W, this is what manufacturers often do, slapping a small panel onto air conditioner cover. With $20-30 controller.
