Praise the Lord you were not on that thing!
I have 2 questions!
1) Was both of your batteries the same brand?
2) Who made those batteries?
What kind of battery tender are you using?
I use Deltran battery tenders and though their good I’ve had some fail and stop charging.
If it goes the other way and fails to shut off continuing to charge it can cook the battery and ya eventually it could blow.
Mine has a red and green light. If the red doesn’t change to green (charged and maintaining) in a reasonable amount of time that red light is a red flag that needs to be investigated. Bad connection, battery, or charger.
