Trickle Charge Batteries

I want to trickle charge my batteries. What post do you attach to when charging the two joined batteries? + on one, - on the other? Are they 6 or 12 volt. Haven't pulled them out to see, just bought the (used) RV this month.

Yep, what golfpro said.... We have four batteries in our motor home, two for the coach and two dedicated to the residential fridge so I have two battery tenders one for each pair of batteries .

If these batteries have 3 cells each (3 water caps) they are 6 volt. + on one battery, - on the second battery. There is a short jumper cable between the two, don't use those terminals.

If they are 12v, they have 6 cells each...which has already been explained.
