Thanks Robert
You could get something like this
Ultra TRIK-L-START Starting Battery Charger/Maintainer
or this
AMP-L-START Starting Battery Charger/Maintainer - Overview Page
Country Coach comes with an echo charger but mine went out so I installed the Magnum combiner, works great.
I also installed one of these in the power port that way I see my voltage every time I walk in the door.

2005 Alpine Limited Battery Problems

Robert, before you starting adding additional hardware find out what caused the batteries to get drawn down. As you have said (and others have the same experience), you have gone longer periods without problems, something is different so, to paraphrase, do not fix the symptom, FIX THE CAUSE.
