Have you considered a Sparesafe?
seems like the way to go, I am tempted to have both a Sparesafe and a locking bolt.
Tom. One thing you have proved to any Cali user.... In 99% of cases, a hookup is not essential with solar. Not many users will achieve / exceed 140 almost-consecutive nights away in the van, including in Autumn / Winter!
The information I have is that solar panels, with the charger I have, keep the battery in even better condition than hookup. Once the battery is charged, the charger goes into "float charge" mode, keeping the battery in tip-top condition.Even with solarpanels the batterys need to be topped-up on hook-up to keep them in the best posible condition.
