Hooking up Inverter

I am planning on installing an inverter in my 2006 F350 with 6.0. My question is to what battery should I hook up to. I have the dual battery option with two Optima Red Tops in the factory locations. Does it matter which battery that I hook up to?

All Ford Super Duty's with diesels have dual batts. Both are connected together, but the passenger side battery is closest to the alternator so suggest connecting to that one. Also suggest upgrading your alt, as these trucks are underpowered in terms of electrical.

I went with the drivers side because its closer to were I could easily run the wire through the firewall with the factory provided hole in the fire wall. And it was shorter distance to run the wires to the invertor.
