I'm using a PWRGate and Rig Runner on my station.  I have 3 AGM batteries, all the same make, capacity and the same age.  I've been keeping them all charged by switching them around, plugging in one for awhile then another and on and on.

Will they charge just fine if I connect them all 3 in parallel?  It would be less hassle than plugging and unplugging every day or two

Sure why not. They'll just take longer to each get a full charge.

When you parallel them hook positive feed to positive terminal on a battery on one end or string/buss tie and the negative lead to a battery on other end of string. Hooked up this way they will all see same discharge and charge potential.
