hook to - to your ground post, and the + to positive of the battery that feeds your front pump. set the charger to 72 volts and turn it on.

if you do that, you will overcharce the both battaries on top right. the other 4 are quicker discharged, because you use them for all pumps and the two on the right top only for the front pumps.

the only think you can do is to buy a 24v charger and charge two battaries at the same time, so no of your battaries will be overcharged.

never charge battaries with different load or capacities at the same time!!!

good point, and in theory it's correct. I wonder how it plays out in real life though...

i can tell you how it goes in real life:
you want to see what happen??? hit only the switches of the back pumps until they don't move and then charge all battaries. you will overcharge the two battaries the whole time, because they are already full. they start sulfating, maby they get really hot and you got a really big mess in your trunk. that happen even if you have a automatic charger. that stops untill ALL battaries are full!

i'm sorry to hear that.

expensive charger tries to repair the battaries with high current shocks. buy a 24v charger and charge 2 battaries at the same time in the future and be sure to buy one with automatic turn off after the battaries are full!!! your battaries will last for over 10 years, if you won't discharge them untill they are completely empty!!!
