You don't want to leave the redarc engaged for months at a time as it will get hot and use 0.7A all the time too.

Best to disconnect the earth on the redarc with an in-line switch and then connect the charger to both sides of the redarc so it charges both batteries.

I have exactly the same setup as yours. Even down to all the brands! My car also sits for long periods waiting for the next trip away.

No problem with what you are doing. Been doing it for quite a while now.
