1. Does anyone know if the original converter in the UHaul VT-16 has multiple charging settings? 2. Has anyone found an inexpensive and reliable float charge maintainer fit for a 225AH battery?

I bought a Intelligent Battery Charger for just this reason. It maintains the battery in RVs and vehicals.
I got mine at Canadian Tire, but you can buy them any place. There is some disscussion on this forum about them.

If you are looking for a charger to maintain the battery during storage, any one of the two-stage (Float and off) chargers in the one-two Amp range should do it -- You start with a charged battery -- Wally and auto parts stores carry them -- DON'T get one of the old "trickle" chargers as they can overcharge a battery, esp an older one.

If you are looking to recharge the battery, then I would look into the Vector line of chargers, but many are NOT self starting in float.

Ideally, I would have the maintenance charger for storage and the serious charger for recharging, plus engine starting for myself and others in need.
