Question Battery Tender Charging Question

I just picked up a Battery Tender Junior to keep my trailer batteries charged in the off season. I have a 2012 28BHS.

Since my dual batteries are wired together, I'm wondering if it's safe to hook the tender up to either of the batteries to charge them both at the same time? That way I won't have to bother swapping them out all the time. Since the converter charges them in line when it's plugged into shore power, I figured it would be ok.

Any suggestions or confirmation would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

Not a problem - you can use the tender without issue with both batteries at the same time. I have a couple and they work great.

Best way to hook them up is the pos of one battery and neg on the other battery... this way one battery does not "dominate" the other.
