Default Battery Charger

Hey guys. Does everyone keep the battery charger on all the time when doked and pluged in? I've been keeping the batery charger off for days then turn it on for one day then off again, is this better for the batteries?

actually...if you have a staged charger..meaning that it reduces amperage as it tops off ..then no...you should keep it on all the time...we keep ours on when we dry store our boat and when we're docked...we keep the charger on.....so..in one word..you should keep your charger on all the time so that it charges the batts all the way up and will be ready....
be sure to check the water level in the batt's ....if they boil off..the batts will cook and be ruined....
