Truck wont start ??? HELP

So about a week ago I went on a 1200 km trip truck ran flawless like normal. Went outside today tried to start it and nothing not even a click of the relay, put the charger on the batteries for a couple of hours and nothing. HMMM. Tried to jump it with the wifes car at high idle and nothing... Looking for some ideas as to what I should be looking for and thanks in advance.

well first you need to charge your batteries individually and then have them tested and check your cables to make sure they are good and clean and installed tight

First off you can charge both batteries at once. Second what do you mean when you say nothing? No crank? Crank no start? No lights in the dash when you turn the key on?

I already charged the batteries cleaned the post and clamps and checked the cables. Sorry there is all the lights, warning bells, gp's cycle but the starter doesn't turn. I'm gonna check the starter solenoid tommorow.

I started with the obvious, I got the wife to try and start it while I tapped the starter with a hammer. It started, so I stopped tapping and she tried it again and nothing. So $300 cdn and my truck is back up and running.
