I read a post a couple of weeks ago on the issue and there was mention of a charger to add to the battery system that feed off of the house to the chassis and vice a versa. No I cannot find the post. Thanks in advance to all that may want to advise here.

I would think your Tradewinds came with a BIRD system (keeps both chassis and house batteries charged on shore power). So your problem would lie with that, unless you are storing it without shore power. Due to drains from the computer, clocks, steps and other small drains, a chassis battery can go flat in 7-14 days.
I believe this is the device you read about.
