my battery charger

I have an older NEWMAR HDM 50 3-bank battery charger...

I've been doing some "research" and I'm worried that leaving it on 24/7 isn't great for my batteries. When the batteries are full, I believe it constantly provides a small voltage to the batteries to keep them topped off.
It seems newer chargers are able to periodically check levels with a short charge--instead of constant.

Is my thinking close?

I have 3 DEKA 8D batteries (not AGM)
