Steve, in my lay opinion, you would do step 2 in your Post #38, following the order in the charger's instructions as I linked in Post #39 [which should match the instruction book you got with the charger], and which I summarized mostly correctly.

-- New red/pos alligator clip to red/pos terminal where main AS red cable attaches;
-- New black/neg alligator clip to other battery's black/neg terminal where main AS black cable attaches

[Better to use the eyelet connectors if possible and get them bolted down under the nut with the other connectors, if possible]

240Ah would seem to cover both of your SRM-24 batteries IMO, but hopefully the shop will confirm.

If you are in doubt about any of this, after reading the manual, please wait for an expert to confirm the above.

Good luck!

Peter

Do you need to put the trailer switch in store position if the battery is disconnected? The reason I am asking is that I use the 120v power in the trailer to run a dehumidifier and prior to reading this post I would store my trailer using an extension cord with a photo cell, so the power would only come on at night and leave everything connected. What do you think?

Absolutely.
