Yes. Plus you should change to a deep cycle battery, learn to monitor the battery charge level, know your electrical consumption, and be able to calculate how far you can safely drive on the battery.

A solar panel on the roof could eliminate regular charging.
The vacuum gauge plus wheel covers helped increase summer 2015 mileage to 38.5 MPG, while summer 2016 mileage was 38.6 MPG without the wheel covers. Drove 33,021 miles 2016-2018 at 35.00 MPG.
