There's a "oops" scenario here. Say you shut off the truck and leave your lights on. Come back later and red battery is dead, but with enough juice to engage the solenoid when the key is turned on. Even though the red battery is still dead and incapable of starting the truck, the yellow battery provides voltage to all circuits (except starter) before you hit 'start' so you don't know red battery is dead. But when you engage start, starting current will blow yellow fuse. It's not such dangerous failure mode as long as the fuse blows.
The way around this is having a smarter solenoid that only engages at over 12v. That way the yellow battery begins charging only when alternator is charging so you can't try to start with it.
