Trickle Charge Crank Battery?

I leave our class C Thor Chateau on shore power at our house. But the vehicle battery died and I thought I could use my little trickle charger to keep the new battery viable.
Good idea or not? We have no problems with the RV house batteries.

Install this instead. Serves the same purpose and allows you to have the house batteries keep the chassis battery maintained.

It's a fairly easy installation and works great! I installed on on my 2018 Outlaw 29H a couple years ago.

Order the Trik-L-Start without the battery clips option as it will be permanently wired.

No problem using a trickle charger.

Are the house batteries Lithium ion or not. I could read no description. I'm guessing not, but need to be sure before I buy the Trik-L-Start. Thanks again.
