I am looking for direction. I have two 12v batteries, and am looking for a small (as much as possible) solar charger to trickle charge and maintain the batteries while stored. Used to dry camp (with generator) but now find ourselves in campgrounds with power. I really need to know what I will need to maintain the batteries only.

I use a $55 30 watt solar panel and a $20 weatherproof charge controller from WindyNation. Works well. Controller will periodically equalize the batteries. Just “maintaining” IMO isn’t enough.
