I may be old fashioned, but I don't parallel my two batteries. Perhaps in really urgent circumstances, but that hasn't happened yet.

I do switch batteries after running the engine or charger to bring the duty battery up to charge.

Odd days I use #1, even days #2.

Fully charge the duty battery before switching it to reserve. Its charge will be your "Plan B" when needed.
