Trickle charger

My battery on my 2015 274dbh only holds a charge for a few days. I want to buy a solar trickle charger for it. I only need it when I'm not using my camper. Does anyone have any good recommendations? Thanks

Battery Tender


I personally like CTEK a few more functions, but either will work fine.

why does it only hold a charge for a few days? are there loads connected to it? typically there are some 'parasitic loads that will run down a battery in a short time. have you installed a battery disconnect switch to completely remove all loads from the battery? a fully charged battery without loads will keep its charge for several months. have the batteries been discharged to the point of damage? if so, a trickle charger may not keep them charged? pull them out and have them tested.
