    What you need to buy is a battery isolator with a monitor on it so they can charge seperatly (better for your alt) and so that they dont kill each other!!!!..
    Stinger makes a nice one I think its SR200... and then pick up a monitor for it...easy install.........power wire to it, then power to one battery fused , then power to the other batter fused.

    Hope this helps you any other Q's or anything I missed feel free to ask or someone else may clue in here.
