Who owns a trickle.......

......charger for their battery ? I don;t need one for the RIB, in fact it's for my jeep. Without boring you too much, the wires are shot and the battery will not take a charge from the alternator, therefore whilst I have just put a brand new battery on, I'd like to keep it charged throughout the season.

I was advised that one could buy a trickle charger that would not only charde the battery but allow it to discharge to a certain level - as in use - before recharging it.

Any thoughts ?

Thanks.......

Do not get a trickle charger!
It will over charge your battery, this is that you want

Have a look on ebay you should get it cheaper!

try this link, http://www.unicornmotor.com/airflow_...onditioner.htm
I use one of these units on the rib battery during the winter. It can be left in place and on for months on end and keeps the battery in top condition.

Don't want to be rude, but a couple of lengths of wire to fix the jeep would be cheaper.

...........but I'd need a wiring diagram, time and the cost of having someone qualified to do the job. HAving only paid 450 for the jeep, and an additional 280 for changing the cylinder head gasket, brakes, undersealing and front pipe, I've decided to call it a day on any additional expense this year otherwise she is getting counterproductive to run. I may as well buy into a tractor or a something in a little bit better running condition. Therefore, with a charger I can have something for the jeep and boat.
