If you need batteries you'll want to change out both.

You also need to check this: if they're wired pos-pos and neg-neg that's likely 2 12V batteries wired in Parallel. If yours are wired pos-neg from battery A to Battery B that is 2 6V batteries wired in Series.

You must know for sure so you don't accidently double up to 24V.

Don't have a clue. I can not think of a reason why you would have two chassis batteries. Chassis is the van portion of the RV. House is the camper portion.

Diesels can have two chassis batteries.... my Magntidude does.

All of the specs I found online show his model should have the V10 Triton and not a V8. Perhaps if it was made in the UK, it is a diesel and has two chassis batteries?
