Im new at this whole boating thing. I have a 13 Yamaha 242 Limited S and want to hook up a tender. Do I need a tender that charges two batteries? Do I only hook up the tender to one battery? HELP!!!

It is always best to charge batteries separately. This is especially true when the battery types differ such as marine starting for start battery and marine deep cycle for house battery. A two bank smart charger will do the job.
