Coach battery charging

My motorhome has 4 6 volt coach batteries that are in a series--24 volt total. Can someone explain how to maintain a charge on these batteries without removing them from the coach? I store the coach in a barn with no electricity. I would like to trickle charge the batteries while in storage. Any ideas how best to do this. Thanks.

You don't say what kind of rig it is but most with 4 batteries have them hooked in series/parallel with the voltage output being 12VDC and not 24. Charging can be done using a standard 12 Volt trickle charger or solar charging system.
