You may have attached a trickle charger but possibly not. You may also turn it on regularly but most likely not. Typically, your equipment will be just sitting there through the cold months with a cover or gathering dust, eagerly awaiting Spring.
Your ATV or UTV is chomping at the bit for a muddy run once the weather warms up and you probably are as well.
