It is unregulated. It will put out full voltage and amperage, it even says so on the label of our Honda.

Thumbs up

If connected directly to the battery the genset is un-regulated, if connected thru the shore cord it is regulated by the TT's converter.

I use this to keep our 53 Ford battery charged while stored in Winter...
