I think you already have the best solution.
The Landis unit will keep your pack topped off in the off time. Just
remember to occasionally pop off ALL of the caps and glance at the water
For heavy winter use I have a switch mounted that byasses the SSR. This
allows the stock charger to run continuously until I shut it off. Some may
be worried about that setup. But, I figure like you said if I'm coming
back in 8-12 hrs to plow again what harm could there be? Maybe I burn off
a tablespoon or two of water but at least I'm plowing with warm batteries.
If more snow isn't in the forecast then I just let the Landis do what it
does best. I plow/blow three driveways, sometimes 3 times a day. This
setup has worked from me.
