What is the easiest way to equalize batteries?

My coach battery is 2 years old being used on a part time basis about 50 days a year. I think it is is time to equalize my battery to desulfate my battery to make it last longer. There is a lot of long technical advice on the web that talks about multiple methods to do this. What have others done that works for them ? thanks

Many high-end converters/chargers have a setting for that or they do it automatically.

Check your Charge controllers specifications. The one in our Jayco has a Equalizing cycle that runs every 21 hours.

Don

My TT's charge controller has been off since I installed SOLAR in 2012, so I manually equalize them every 4 months with the SOLAR MPPT charge controller.
