I have a 24 volt deep cycle battery system with a built in 3 bank charger, for my trolling motor. I cant park the boat at home, and where i store it has no electric power for recharging. Any suggestions on a power source, i am out about 2 or 3 times a month on Grapevine. For reference the boat is Bass Tracker 175, with a 80lbs thrust trolling motor. Thanks in advance for any advice.

Something like a stay in charge might work for you as your vehicle can charge the batteries on the way back from the lake.

Check into using a solar charger and mounting it in the optimal position its better that nothing. The problem is you would probably need 3 chargers.
I do not use one just an idea.

Does your storage unit have a light? If so, you do have charging options.

I am looking into solar now. Thx for thr suggestion. The problem may turn out to be that a solar panal large enough to supply the power may be to large for portability. Stillchecking it out.
