Customer Question

I have a 15000E. Have not started in awhile (I know - my bad). I put on trickle charger to make sure battery was charged. Charger indicated it was but I left it on the trickle for 24 hours anyway. But when I attempt to start I get a chattering starter motor. SO.. is the problem most likely a bad battery, the starter motor or something else? Is there an easy way to test some or all of these before I go buy a new battery? Thanks!
