Re: trickle charger?

<< My thought is that there's enough electronic and electric stuff in this car
 that having it go dead on an undercharged battery in a couple of weeks isn't
 a big deal, and that a trickle charger would be a good thing.  I'm not
 (knock on wood) seeing any electrical strange things going on.

Lewis- I have been driving my A8 more, and my V8 less, and It is not uncommon
for me to leave the V8 outside for weeks at a time. I never have a starting
problem. There are ways to check for abnormal current drains which are not
difficult. If you have had ANY electronics installed beyond what came from the
factory, start there. If you need help on trouble shooting let me know. BTW, a
trickle charger won't hurt if the battery has water. HTH
