I decided to take a chance on a G40 because unless the truck batteries are totally gone probably all that is needed is a little help for the low batteries. And the next size larger is way expensive.
The last time I needed to replace my 7.3 batts I got no start. No jump start so I took the batts to the batt store and when tested they told me they were low, but not totally gone. I bought 2 new ones and took them home and installed. Since then I keep my batts on that truck on a maintainer. Yup, now I have G40 for that truck.
1000 amps is quite a bit of help. Like others have recommended hook up the G40 for a period of time then try to start. That method worked for me when I let my car batts get pretty low. We waited 5 minutes and it was good.

With a dual 12v battery setup (Dodge Cummins 5.9) if a batt charger is hooked up to one of them, will the charging current also make it's way to the 2nd?

Absolutely. They are connected in parallel. The result is 12v to the truck. When you charge the batteries or connect to a maintainer we just connect to one battery.

I have the xp-10. Will start a diesel. Picked one up after being gone on a trip. Wife’s Subaru has an electric parking brake. Guess what? You can’t release it without juice. Was parked nosed up to a fence, dint have enough jumper cables to reach. As soon as I connected the xp I saw the problem....dome light had been left on.
