Battery Charger

I have a RV with two 12V deep cycle batteries. When camping i would like to plug a battery charger into 110V to keep the batteries charged as we use the 12V lights, fans and the like. I don't want to overcharge the batteries so chose a charger that shuts off and on to maintain charge. The chargers instructions says that i must disconnect all loads in order to charge as the charger will interpret the drain as a battery that will not hold a charge and turn off after two hours. What charger should i buy?

As long as your unit is plugged in to a power outlet the batteries are being charged.
