Charging batteries

I keep a trickle charger on mine year round when not in use. Of late no use , but batteries are in good shape and fully charged, when I do finally go.
I have an on board two bank charger that is plugged in as soon the boat is cleaned and parked under shelter. I just changed out a battery that was nearly 5 years old. Proper charging and maintenance of a battery is key to a long life.
