Half reasonable question, but the answer has nothing to do with your trunk battery as the explanation has battery in quotes. This means they are not talking about your battery, but the "battery" that is created between different electrogalvanic materials.
However, you're in luck because our hoses do not connect to metal as we have plastic connectors on our radiators. So given plastic on the end of our hoses, and plastic on the rads, we do not have dissimilar materials mating to one another.
Bottom line: relax and cruise easy.
