Check for a power drain if anything is plugged in, even in the winter it shouldn't die in a week. Also a battery tender is a good investment, all you need is an extension cord and you can just dump it under the hood and forget it.

You can always remove the battery if you can't use a tender.

that or unhook the neg. terminal.

P.S. it's better to use a slow charger to bring back a dead battery than jumper cables, but ya do what ya gotta do.

I've taken my battery out and kept it in the warm with the battery tender back in the day. Kept the battery alive for many years. Winter is heck on a battery in storage...
