I added this to the side of my shop when I had it built a year ago. Dedicated 30 amp service plug strictly for my camper. Works great!! The camper sits on the driveway to the right of pic about 10 feet.

Like jbfunfinder mentioned above, your power center should have a "Float Mode". That means you can leave it plugged in all the time. I have done this for 4 years and the battery is fine. Never had to add water, never overcharged, always ready to go. No need to buy another trickle charger.
Also found the power center is just as fast as charging off a generator as a separate car battery charger.

I have the WFCO unit. I look up the series and see if it has a flow charger. Thanks for the info.

JB - thanks for the info! I have the same power center. I wasnt't aware that these had the built in float charger. Live & learn I guess.
