Yes, if your charger is a dual battery charger, that means it essentially functions as 2 discrete chargers that will treat the house and cranking batteries independently. It wouldn't hurt to check the specs of your charger and make sure that it can handle the charging load of the house bank or it may be very slow to recharge.

Polar Battery on Boundary Rd in Vancouver is a good resource, and you can get good prices on batteries and chargers without paying the "marine" markups!
