Battery maintainer

Looking for a good Battery maintainer, not a trickle charger, to hook up to my two Deep Cycle batteries for the winter. I keep the batteries in the garage and hook them up to the charger once a month. I would like to get a true maintainer so I can just leave them hooked up. If there is a maintainer that will hook to two separate batteries, at the same time, that would be preferable.

This board is getting as bad as Amazon in reading my mind what I want to buy next!

Just yesterday I was searching for a solar powered maintainer and found some with great reviews on Amazon.
This is the one I am considering Solar battery .
I was thinking solar because my battery is always dead the few times my RV service center lets me take my hauler home.

Battery Tender works well if you are removing the batteries.

Couple of years age I bought a portable solar charger and it keeps my trailer batteries topped up ready to go anytime.
