Adding additional batteries (2) to a system?

Hi, currently have 1 x start and 1 x house with solar and engine charging (old Yanmer single).

I now have two additional heavy duty truck batteries (750cca) which I'd like to be able to add to the system. How to proceed? Can I charge off engine? What about solar?

Have separate house and start switches, solar regulator and start/house isolator solenoid.

Any guidance appreciated. Thanks. Andy
