    Default Solar Battery tender for dump trailer

    I am wanting to put a solar battery tender on my dump trailer. Any suggestions of what to get? I was looking at Battery Tender 021-1163 5W Solar Maintainer Amazon.com: Battery Tender 21-1163 5W Solar Maintainer: Automotive

    I would opt for the 15 watt panel.
    At 830 milliamps you'll have that added reserve for those cloudy days.

    Id like to do this also, that is the panel I use for my genny. Works well.

    On the trailer how would you mount it so it wasnt likely to succumb to breakage?

    I was just gonna mount it on top the pump box. Maybe make a cover on a hinge so when trailer parked and not in use you just flip it up to charge

    I have a 20 watt Renology panel hard mounted to the pump box on my power tilt deckover. A BatteryMINDer charge controller desulfator. Amazon.com: BatteryMINDer SCC-18 12-V, 16 Amp, 18-Watt Solar Battery Charger/Maintainer/Desulfator - Designed for Cars, Trucks, Motorcycles, ATV, Boat, RV, etc.: Industrial & Scientific I used the Renology pannel as Ive had good luck with them in the past, it fit the box & had good mounting brackets. Happy with the setup.
