Default totally dead, no dash lights either

I was gone on vacation for 2 1/2 weeks. When I got home the truck is totally dead and will not crank. No dome light, no radio, no dash lights, no clicking when I try to crank it, nothing. I have had a 12v, 2 amp charger on one of the batteries for 12 hours and still nothing. Both batteries were replaced less than 6 months ago.

Any suggestions? I am not mechanically inclined, my husband usually takes care of the vehicles but he is out of the country.

Could it be a fuse or something?

meetmybumper will become famous soon enough

Did you try cleaning the terminals to the battery and making sure that they are put on tight?
