If your setup has the alternator charge the Auxiliary battery via the standard Mercedes ignition operated relay then connecting a charger to one of your batteries will only charge that battery when the ignition is off.

You will need two chargers or a voltage sensing relay (VSR) to charge both batteries and be sure you chose a multistage charger so you do not overcharge your battery.

I second Erics concern, extraneous wires especially still connected at one end can be a disaster waiting to happen.

Be interesting to know how many kilograms of copper that represents.
