We will be packing Wolfram up for the winter in mid September, and returning to New Zealand for the summer(winter). We have a storage place in Arvada, but it has no power.
We need to pull the batteries and have them on a maintainer for Sep-May, otherwise they will freeze or at least be degraded.

Can anyone offer a spot in a garage for 2x batteries?

Payment in fermented beverages offered. Smile

Drop me a PM if you can assist.

Geoff,

Around here, I see very small solar panels mounted on outbuildings on remote property. I've heard they are popular with snowbirds who leave for the winter but want their RVs inside to have batteries kept charged. Perhaps you can find a kit for your storage building where you can hang a solar panel out for the winter?

Unfortunately there is no access to the outside that is suitable for a solar panel...

Still looking, but worst case is 2 new batteries (Walmart)
