Do you have a switch/breaker on your panel that says Charger? That's how I am wired. If the switch is not turned on the charger aspect is off weather I am on generator or Shore power.I also have 2 switches. One for DC power connected or seperated to the 2 batteries and an inverter / charger switch connected or separating the 2 batteries.
I guess I could use the dc switch and select starting battery and alternator will charge that battery while underway? And when I anchor , shut the starting battery bank off ,
put on inverter on ac house battery, and select that same bank for DC devices.? But again when I use the generator to run microwave will it also be charging the dedicated house battery which I don't want to over charge.
Amazing how complicated this .
Thanks for your help if you can give me any .
