I am not 100% sure but wouldn't that just be 2 12v batteries run in series to get the 24v? I would think you could just charge them one at a time. What is this for?

Well, I just bought a 2000 f350 and its got 2 12v batteries. One on the passenger side and the other on the drivers. I'm just not sure on how I charge them. I was thinking I would just charge each battery one at a time. Just wanted know if there were any tricks?

It's still a 12v system, lol.

Just unhook the batteries and charge them one at a time.

this is what I use.
Amazon.com: Battery Tender 022-0165-DL-WH 12-Volt 2-Bank Battery Management System: Automotive Amazon.com: Battery Tender 022-0165-DL-WH 12-Volt 2-Bank Battery Management System: Automotive
will do both batteries at the same time, the lights will tell you the status. charging, charging with battery over 80% and charged. when charged it'll go into float mode so no worry about over charging.

Just put a charger on one, and it charges both. I have a trickle charger permanently mounted on my truck. Have the same set up in my boat (two batteries). Works great. Cheapo from Walmart.

Yes our trucks are a 12v system, but in fairness to the op you can have a 24v system with two 12v batts or four 6v batts
