And an inline fuse holder.

Don't fuck with unfused car batteries - i've seen a loose, unfused +12V cable burn a hole in a car trunk.

I was going to use a trickle charger. Should I still fuse it?

If you're using a small wire (14ga or less), the wire itself is your fuse.

Probably, unless you're just gonna touch the terminals quick and drop the window without the switch.

At least it's a dry heat in NM. If it's 95 in the sun, it's 85 in the shade.

if it's a wall wart charger then it may not give you enough current. Those window motors do use quite a bit of current

Should be fine without a fuse. The thing might fall on its ass and roll down the window super slowly depending on how much current it's capable of, or even not work at all, but it can't hurt to try.

It's a big old Sears unit, 6A IIRC.

Fucker's old enough that it's got a voltage switch for 6V cars.
