Wiring a quattro and alternator to charge 2 battery banks

I am replacing my existing battery charging and inventor system. Can i connect my alternator and the Quattro to the Argofet input terminal? (my existing splitter does this)

I read that the Quattro trickle charge terminal should be used for the starter batteries rather than the main Quattro charge output. Also keeping the alternator dedicated to the starter battery.

If i cannot connect to shore power for some timed the barge will need all batteries charged from the alternator and not the Quattro. Hence, the Argofet would do the job if i can connect a common input from Charger and alternator.

Your guidance is very welcome

Cheers
