I have had a 12v CB radio in my M151 since I got it in 1991. I
just use the one battery that gives me the 12v I need and did not
worry about the unequal load with the other. I got longer life out of
those 2 batteries than with any civy vehicle in recent memory; 7+ years.
For the little difference, don't worry about it.
