How would you hook it up?
I like it alot, but when you let it sit the battery goes dead. I have the red one.

First of all, welcome to the RV Dreams forums. As you can see, a number of folks are willing to help you with solutions to your request.
However, there is always someone that can come along and put the fly in the ointment, and it looks like it will be me. Keep in mind, this is a simple comment and I don't have any answers for your request. However, I have been out on the internet to what looks like a Boliy dealer's website and to what looks like a "company" website.
The dealer website is here, The Boliy Guy, and what I think is a Boliy company website is here, Boliy Company website.
Now, in looking at these two places I couldn't find any reference to a generator that needed a battery. None of the specificatons that I found referenced an electric start. The Boliy Guy even had a parts manual and a service manual at his site. I looked at the parts manual and couldn't find any reference to a battery.
Then, out on IRV2's website, I found a discussion about Boliy's generators and a reference to a "new one with an electric start." So, why doesn't the dealer and the company websites say anything about it?
My advice would be to go to your Boliy dealer and find out what would be needed to hook up a trickle charger. After all, with no references that I could find about a battery, there is no guarantee that the Chinese even used a 12V battery. That is why I recommend you consult with a dealer or the company itself.

I just finished up connecting a battery tender to my boily gen,you take off the back cover and hook up a wire to the positive side of the battery were it connects to the solenoid.Then i ran it through the hole were the manual choke would be (i have a auto choke) then used a nut and bolt.Thats were i connect the positive lead of the tender,then just connect the ground anywhere its grounded.I clip mine on the engine mount bolt,you could run a pig-tale off that and drill a hole with a nut and bolt if ya want to.But i just clamp it on the bolt.Its that easy!
