An easy work around is to get a Battery Tender Jr and connect it to your battery with the ring terminals. Route the cord to an outlet inside the RV and plug it in. When you connect the main shore power it will charge your battery. If you don't want to connect the shore power, then you can charge it off a drop cord.

Using an inexpensive battery tender to charge your battery can lead to extra noise on your DC line when plugged in, not a good thing if you are plugging into the 12 volt accessory sockets to charge phones and other electronic devises.

Deep cell batteries really need a three stage charger to achieve a full charge as well as provide desulfite cycles to promote ling life. Battery tenders do not do that.
