I have two battery banks on board. The house bank is two group 27 Gels, The propulsion bank is four 8A4D batteries in series making it a 48 volt bank. They have been on board since they were installed seven years ago. They remain connected through the winter. Both have solar panels connected through Morningstar controllers keeping them topped up. The 48 volt bank also has a 48 volt wind turbine connected to the bank. For the most part the solar panels keep things topped up in both cases. But, I do check on the boat at least once a month (often more if the weather is nice) and power up the 120 volt battery chargers when on board. Not that is really needed. Seven years and both banks are still going strong.
