Ok, year 2 with the rig and notice a huge decrease in battery life. anyone else experience this? I bring my battery inside for the winter months and run it on a battery conditioner and disconnect it when trailer isn't in use. I would guess like most things the stock 12v rv battery that comes from the factory is not top quality and perhaps should upgrade, or has anyone managed to replace it on warranty?

This is a silly question, but did you check the electrolyte level?

I added a small 18 watt solar panel to charge the battery while the RV is in storage. I also added a battery disconnect to isolate the battery from the main circuit when the solar panel is active. I keep the electrolyte level up with distilled water as needed. So far, I have not had any issues with battery life and the battery is the original from the factory.
