I know there are a lot of threads out here about batteries and chargers. But I haven't seen too many that go into great detail about the proper shore charger.

And, every time I read any thread about batteries I just get more confused....

So, sorry if this is redundant, but I would like to ask about how I should be charging my specific battery bank.

I have (2) Group 31 deep cell batteries powering my stereo and (1) marine starting battery for the engine. I have my batteries connected to a Yandina 100 combiner.

In the past we have mostly been wakeboarding while having the stereo cranked. But this year I think we will try to float and relax more while out on the lake. So I just added the second deep cell battery this week.

In the past, I have just used a Battery Tender to maintain the charge while on shore. But now with (2) deep cell batteries I am going to guess that won't cut it.

I also have a 2/35/200 amp battery charger/starter but it isn't very high tech and I don't think it will shut itself off once the batteries are fully charged.

So what is the best way not to toast my batteries and maintain the proper charge?
