How do I get Jenny to Charge up my Battery?
nOOb ALERT! Yes I'm sure that it has been covered, yes I did try to search for the answer - but alas my Google-Fu has failed me. To make matters worse I think I already know the answer, but would really appreciate any comments that you have that might help me better understand the best solution.
I have a Honda EU2000i generator, and want to figure out the best way to utilize it to keep the battery on my trailer charged up. I also have the AS's stock converter.
When you're not connected to shore power and you need to charge your battery, do you just hook up the generator:
1) to the shore power input on the trailer and let the trailer's converter do the charging; or
2) to an external battery charger that you connect to the battery; or
3) directly to the battery using the generator's DC output?
It seems to me that any one of these methods would work. Are there distinct pros and cons to any of these approaches? For instance is one method significantly faster or slower than the others?
Also how do I know when I'm done or "done enough?" if I only have a multi-meter to help guide me.
