Default Battery Charging

The current thread about trailer winches has me wondering about charging a winch battery on the trailer from the truck. I want to mount my winch on the trailer with its own battery. I also want to slowly charge the winch battry while I drive with power from the truck. I have a accessory wire on my 6 pin connector already. The wire is currently being used to charge the small battery for the emergency brakes. My accessory wire is 12 or 14 Ga. I know that I can't simply run a hot wire to the winch battery because the battery will draw a bunch of current if it is low. High current = melted wire. How do a limit the current to allow trickle charging?
