Battery charging ?

I have a 99 Dutch Star, and it has four 6 volt d.c. batteries and can someone please tell me how to hook up a charger on them to keep them charged up while in storage. Last winter I removed them and charged them one at a time, but that was a lot of work, can they just be charged in the m.h. without have to disconnect the batteries, I want to chagre them all four at once.. and i can't seem to get them to do that..
thanks for any info..

The batteries will be wired up into two pairs. Each pair will be hooked in series to produce 12 volts the the output of the two pairs will be joined together at some point. You should be able to hook to one of those pairs out cables which will be 12 volts and to ground. Check it with a voltmeter.
