as long as you have them wired for 12 volts use a 12 charger..

2004 Chev Silverado Duramax optioned past the max. 2009 Jayco Eagle 308 RLS 765 watts of solar, 6-6 volt batteries (696 amp hour), 2000 watt (4000 surge) whole house inverter.

I dont think a 6VDC charger is readily available anymore either... I'm sure you can probably find one but they sure are not sitting on the shelf of the big stores.

Everyone says just treat your two 6VDC connected in series as one 12VDC battery and that includes charging as well. This is the way they are charged-up using your trailer on-board converter/charger unit.

I've always charged mine together, but my Century Charger does have a switch for Charging 6 volts at 15 Amps.
Century has several models listed on their website that will charge 6 volt batteries.
