Dead Starting Batteries

My coach starting battries keep going dead when the coach has been sitting for awhile. Its my understanding that these battries are not charged through shore power. I'm looking at installing some sort of trickle charging system to keep them up. I like the Trik L Start and want to hard wire it with the battery isolator but don't know where the isolator is located. Can someone please guide me in the right direction. Would I be better off with a Solar Panel Charger

First I would find your parasite draw. Have you put any type of equipment into the dash area, ie stereo, backup camera? In my last RV the previous owner put in a newer indash stereo and hooked the power button into a constant draw on the chassis battery. It wasn't until I replaced the stereo with a newer one that I solved the problem. 1 year and 1 new battery latter.
