No electrical power

Hello. I have a 05 f250 power stroke turbo diesel. I have been deployed for 15 months and my vehicle has not been started in atleast 2 months. I went to start it today and it was completely dead. I tried to use a portable battery booster but it didn't have enough power. I went and tried to jumpstart it with another f250 and now I get no electrical power. All connections were correct and there is no corrosion. Did I blow a fuse somewhere? If so which one. Any help would be greatly appreciated. By the way, I have a dual battery system, does it matter which battery I jumpstart?

Possible the batteries are completely dead after two months and might not even take a charge. Do you have a volt meter to test the batteries to see if they have any voltage?

You'll need to charge the batteries for a while. Prob. 2 hours.

I tried to charge the batteries but neither one would take a charge. I should still be able to jump start though. Even with jumper cables I have no power going to the vehicle.

Not if your batteries are dead and don't try to jump it without batteries. Your batteries could have dead shorts in them. If they won't take a charge get two new ones
