I'm an early riser, I usually take my voltage reading first thing in the morning, before I switch anything ON and before my tiny solar panels have put any charge voltage on the battery. If I can get the battery charge status within about 10% that's more than good enough for my purposes. My camper is 100% LED and we use the lights conservatively, the big power hog is the furnace, we can camp multiple days on a single Gr27 battery. If it gets too low, I can still back up the truck, plug the pigtail and let it idle half an hour or more.
