Battery Maintainer

Hello. We have a Jayco Jayflight SLC BH64W. We have had it for 9 months and are putting it away for the winter. My question is what do I look for in a battery maintainer? I have the battery in my home. I know there are different amperage ratings and wasn't sure which one is need.

I've used a Battery Tender brand for several years, now, The maintainers are smart charger design, so when it's conected, it cycles through a series of outputs automatically, to keep the battery charged without boiling out, and prevents sulfation of the plates. Just hook it up and leave it.

X4. The Battery Tender has been serving me well for over 6 years.
The smart charger takes the worry out of boiling away all the water inside.
Happy RVing,
Jeff

Thanks everyone. I'm looking at the Battery Tender now. I am assuming that the 750mA would be sufficient?
