OK it is cold out and we have over a foot of snow , winter fishing lakes open tomarrow and the Scamp will sit for the weather to change. My question is should I remove the battery to the to warmth of indoors.
I have the scamp plugs in to 120 volt so the converter is keeping the battery at full potential and it should not freeze. I have also been keeping a heater on inside ( this doesnot help the battery).
What are people doing with the battery while wait for the next adventure?
Thanks the Grateful Anglers.

My batteries live in their boxes on the tongue of the trailer all winter. I make sure they have a full charge, and then disconnect them, but I don't take them off.

(What are people doing with the battery while wait for the next adventure?)

Everybody does different things and untill a test is done I would guess that it all depends on what we have been taught to do.
I take IN, all batteries that will not be used in the winter
eg. Camper, lawn mower amd clean with bakeing soda and water.
Give them a full charge and place them on wooden shelves in the warm basement.
I think the key is keeping them clean and the temp. has nothing to do with it because the acid if pure, inside will not freeze when the battery has a good charge.
As stated I do what I do and others do as they do and it all seems to work out.
Gerry
PS If nothing else I never had a battery stolen
