Ok Guys, your thoughts appreciated.

Our Swift Bolero 714SB has been kept outside with vehicle battery isolation switch off so negligable amount drained when not is use....no problems.

The habitation battery is left on and trickle charged by the solar panel. No probs.

The difference, is now our vehicle is kept in a barn so solar panel does not work.

Do you guys switch the habitation battery isolator switch off? With a full charge how long would you expect a decent battery to last before recharging?

So good to have you guys "been there and done that" to advise and guide.

I try to take it out at least every other month, for the enjoyment and to stop degradation. Left in isolation, the batteries will self discharge, but I don't know at what rate. If isolated, check that your alarm is still functioning as your insurance is likely to require that. As batteries get older, they hold less charge and last for less time. I think it best to do a monthly check, although I'd expect an isolated battery to survive three months if necessary.
