Charging batteries

when you hook up your generator to charge your batteries, do you hook directly to the batteries or do you simply plug the shore power cable into the generator??

Even the OEM converter-charger will do a better job of charging the batteries than the unregulated DC output terminals on most generators. I have a 3-stage converter-charger so it's a pretty good battery charger, I just plug the shore power cable into my generator's AC output.
