If you keep your MKC in the garage you should make sure you keep the keys far enough away, say at least 15 feet to prevent the approach and interior lighting from cycling on and off. That is the usual cause of premature battery drain.
Being aware of this issue, I keep a portable power pack that can be charged from a USB socket in my vehicle. I haven't had to use it in a year and a half with the MKC but have used it a couple of times to boost other vehicles. That's an easier solution than connecting and disconnecting a trickle charger.
I live in a colder climate than you and haven't had any starting issues with my MKC left outside for a few days in cold winter temperatures.
