What do you guys do when you leave your boat in storage. Do you leave your charger plugged in all the time. While I have mine at home, I unplugged it once the batteries are charged and plug it up once a week to top off. Having a garage built at lake house and was wondering if it would hurt to leave it plugged up.

Get a timer...set it to come on a couple hours a day...that's what I did because I don't trust my chargers...

Depends on the charger. Mike stated a great technique with the timer that works very well.
