    Use a good quality battery maintainer, leave it connected.

    BatteryMinder and Battery Tender are two brands.

    Battery Tender all the time. Its low voltage and a 'peak charger' so it will shut down when battery is fully loaded.
    I run 4 all winter.

    If you have a Battery Tender, then it stays connected to the battery and to wall power all the time.

    Hook it up, plug it in, and leave it be. That is how the battery maintainers are designed to work.

    Battery Tender Jr

    I have a whole shit load of them. Check Amazon as they can be had for as little as $15 at times.

    That is why I have so many. Bought a lot so I never run out.

    Forgive my ignorance...will it help the battery last longer? Last year was my first winter, we pulled the battery and kept it in the basement on a shelf with our boat batteries. In the Spring we charged them up and thought we were good to go...guess again. I had to get a new battery and everyone said PWC batteries will only last one season. That just sounded insane. I don't want to screw up this winter.

    Appreciate thoughts (not trying to hijack the thread, sorry)
