    More conductors = more current so it couldn't hurt. With 1 batt up front and 6 in the back I'd be more inclined to run multiple + runs to the rear batts, the front should be fine with just one.

    Re: how to wire dual alternators to one charging system help me out

    I would run the 2nd alt off a relay/toggle since you don't need it charging all the time....

    No, one run to the front will be fine but I would go with more than 2 to the rear... If I were wiring it up personally I would connect the alts together locally (just a short jump from one to the other) then have one of them connected to the front batt with a single run, then 3-4 runs going to the back. If you connect the alts together it becomes all one circuit so you don't need to run individual runs from each alt to the front batt, one will suffice.
