Hard wired a Schumacher maintainer charger for the winter month's......I refuse to driver my stinger on salt encrusted roads....so she sits the winter under a cover and now with a battery maintainer...I went right to the battery, loosened the pos an neg terminal bolts and fastened in the maintainer connection.......unit sits off the ground under the car.....we'll see if it lasts.But I do not need a dead battery yet.

Garage queen here. I'll just fire it up occasionally, though I do have a trickle charger...and a Schumacher load tester!! OK, since it hasn't snowed in a week or so and the roads are dry, I admit I took it on a beer run...shhhh. Some salty dust but the touchless high pressure joint took care of that.

Only envious of all year driving your best car. I still love the change of seasons as well as the hills and twists up here. Couldn't do full year heat and flat!
Gives us things to look forward to!

Lots of salt up here too. But I clean out the bottom every time it gets soaked from salty grime; I do not wait.

You eat in your car, yet worry about road salt that you can spray off?!

It is heathen behavior to eat salty, oily, messy food in this car. But as long as it isn't mine, chow down. Hah. :)

Hey now; A few fries comment to make a joke doesn't have to run off the rails to an all out assault on the drive thru industry......The car is food free , trust me.

Since I live in Tahoe and it's a lovely lake that they want to keep as clean and clear as possible, no salt.
plenty of skiing I bet
