Battery Charger Died, Replacement Options?

Hi all, I was at the boat today and happened to notice the the lights on my battery charger were all out. I checked all the wiring in and out and couldn't find anything obvious (no customer servicable fuses, etc). It is an old WM 5 amp 3-stage charger. Not too fancy, but it actually seemed to work for what my needs are.

I want to replace it with something that has more charging amps and that can handle two banks of batteries. I have two house and two starting batteries, and would like to be able to top them off with my Honda 2000 generator while on the hook. I am open to all suggestions for a replacement charger, but I would like to keep the cost somewhat reasonable.

Thanks in advance.

Bill
