Should I only use the house bank at dock?

All,

My charger is connected to the battery switch common post so in order to charge both the house bank and the starter battery, the "Both" position must be selected.

My question is should I only select/charge the house bank when at the dock? Having both batteries selected means I'm running my refer off both the house and starter batteries at the same time. I'm not sure if this is an issue when the charger is in float mode and most of the power is coming from the AC feed to the charger.

Thanks,

Shrimp
