George, down below you asked about my Xantrex Truecharge2 automatic smart 3 stage charger

NO you DO NOT have to leave it on all the time, it automatically cycles through the initial 3 stages of Bulk,,,,,,Absorption,,,,,and then backs off to Float mode (once fully charged) and then you can remove it. Of course, if you want to utilize its Equalize feature to reduce sulfation its on and charges at very high voltage (like 16) for a short period to shock and rid the plates of excess sulfation (spelling???)

Do a Google search for Xantrex Truecharge2 Smart Charger for more info and specs, thats about all I have for ya now. Like I said I havent had mine that long but my buddies batteries lasted like 9 years using that charger. It has a series of charge indication LED's and you see it start at high charge (which voltmeter indicates) then slowlllllllllyyyyyyyyyyy reduce the charge

They are $350 to under $500 but if you want precise control and 3 or more stages, precise computer control and Equalize function and sulfation reduction, they arent cheap,,,,,, I have a small fortune invested in my batteries and I aim them to last. Ive used the regular cheap loud noisy buzzing poor regulated and poor controlled OEM converter chargers RV's come with and have ruined batteries with them grrrrr grrrrrrrrr
