a buddy who is an electrician says use the highest amps you have for charging deep cycle batteries.

But I would buy an intelligent battery charger that shuts off when the battery is fully charged..............

I’ve always charged at the highest amp rating, and used the trickle for occasional maintenance.   Shag is not wrong, we recently got a smart charger for the place up north and it’s pretty sweet, but sometimes you have to dance with what brung you!

I'll check out the intelligent charger... So could you "over charge" with what I got?  No risk of damage?

Any recommendations for a good charger (under $100 preferably)? 

CTC has their Nautilus charger on this week at $91.99.  I bought one yesterday:

I had bought this one, but it did not work and I returned it:
