Guess I'll take a shot at both LOL:

In the two batteries shorted together: I'd guess that it probably won't hurt the system too much as they are only being topped off. There is a possible danger if one battery likes to settle at a different voltage than the other...

In my case: Note that when I had the solar on the coach battery I had the coach negative cable disconnected (e.g. only solar + battery). I'm pretty sure my coach Harris battery is well on its way out and am planning on replacing it this spring. Thus the little 6W solar just can't provide enough to charge up/top off a somewhat damaged battery.

When I stop by to run the engines. The chassis battery fires the V-10 right up, but the coach battery can barely turn over the genny. I'm pretty sure its going going going....almost gone.
