Battery Charging Question

I just put in 2 new batteries. My truck is a weekend driver now since i got a commuter car. I would like to keep a battery tender on it. Can i put it on just one battery and if so which one?

As both batteries are connected together it doesn't matter which one you connect a battery tender to. Both will be maintained at the same time.

Another option is one of those little solar powered tenders that sits on the dash board and plugs into the accessory power outlet.

Harbour freight sells them .. if you trust their stuff? I also see them at Autozone and O'riley's near me

Just because I have a banner that states "Moderator"
does not mean you can't argue with my opinions !

shoreline battery charger

Does anyone know if i can put a shoreline charger on my truck? my truck sits a lot and the batteries run down. i am thinking like a block heater plug so i can plug it in anyplace, like fire departments use on the firetrucks.
