Recommendations for trickle charger?

It is my first season winterizing my 08 23FB SE and I am wondering what type of trickle charger you folks recommend for removing/storig the 2 marine/RV batteries on the unit for winter.

Any particular brand or things to look for on the charger?

Thanks!

Sandy

Thumbs up Battery Charger

I use a Battery Tender Plus on my Harley and Batteryminder on the AS. Most any good charger/maintainer will work. The Batteryminder can be found at RV supply. Battery Tender are usually avail. at Auto Parts stores.

Thanks. I found a 12 volt 1.3 amp batteryminder model that seems like it would do the trick for winter storage. I am assuming if you get a 12 volt with higher amps (like 5 amps) this just speeds up the charging process. Seems like the cost is about the same if you buy 2 single chargers versus one dual charger for the two batteries.

I have experience with the batteryminder from my motocross days so will probably pick one of those up.
