solar power trickle charger

Hi has any one ever used one of the small solar trickle chargers to maintain battery while in storage, how did it work?

I have a built in charger that I can plug in, if that is the only thing I want plugged in , i.e. do whole camper. Down side is have to have electric.

I would like to maintain keep battery charged, so I don't have to pull battery out while trailer sits.

Thanks

Quick search on Amazon yields a bunch of inexpensive solar panel trickle chargers running 20-50 bucks. Some have great reviews.

I store indoors else I'd own one of these. I would assume you need to figure out your draw when in storage and go up from there to keep the battery juiced.

I have seen them at Menards and Lowes and just noticed that our local Walmart even had them in the boat/fishing section.

do you have a model that you have used? The one from Harbor freight is 1 of the ones I looked at.
