Question on charging 6-volt batteries at home

For those of you who have converted to golf cart batteries, do you have a home charger recommendation?

I have at least two nice 'intelligent' home chargers, which are either for jump starting car batteries, or for 12-volt charging, but not 6-volts.

A 12 volt charger can charge TWO 6 volt batteries connected in series, just a they would be connected in your trailer. It then to the charger looks like a 12 volt battery.

It's the normal configuration in a motorhome. Actually the converter or alternator charges the two 6 volt batteries in series and the 12 volt engine battery.

Our converter in both the trailer and motorhome has a little control module that regular increases the charge voltage to 14.1 volts to prevent sulfation of the batteery. Our motorhome 6 volt batterys are 11 years old, seems to work.
