Default Battery Charger question

I found a great deal on a NOCO GEN3 Genius Battery Charger. It's a 3 bank charger, but I currently only have 2 batteries. What should I do with the + and - terminals for the 3rd bank until I insatll a 3rd battery?

Just don't connect anything to them. The charger will detect there isn't a battery connected and it won't effect anything.

Actually, it'll make the additional charging amps available to the other two batteries so there is a positive effect but certainly no ill effects as I'm sure you meant.

Yup, I meant it won't hurt anything.

Thanks for the quick responses. I pulled the fuse for the 3rd bank and taped off the 2 terminals.

Hoping to launch in two weeks after a major spring overhaul. Didn't even get it in the water last year, so I'm more than anxious.

Be Safe!!!
