If you have the same set up that I have then perhaps this suggestion may help.

I ran cable wire from my truck battery to the rear(Explorer). Instead of keeping another battery charged, I use this for my winch and it works great !!

This will sound very strange. I have a 55 gallon oil barrel on the tongue of my trailer. It locks up with a masterlock and stores a spare, 2 compressors, 4 type II, jack, 2 socket sets, extra oil, some lines, another anchor, more too, just I forget. This was on the trailer when I bought it. It really works well and holds a lot of stuff.

Lagged, you're right--it does sound strange--but I'll give a wave if I see you on the road!

"Samars" Idea is the best one yet!
Why would you want too leave extra money out side your vehicle at a public ramp? The simple running of a light gauge fuesed or C.B. line to the rear of the vehical is much safer and less noticable. Most current SUV's and older bronco and suburbs already have this wire available.

I have a 93 Explorer with 186,000 miles on her...and if I ever sell or trade it in, all I would need to do is remove the cable from the battery and install in whatever I end up buying. I think it took me all of about a half hour to install and I never worry about another battery to keep charged.
