I am thinking along the same line as the original poster. I have a "smart" three stage float charger that I paid $70. I have used it to charge batteries at home before I leave to go camping in my 1972 Globetrotter. My trailer does not have a converter/inverter. I do have easy access to my battery compartment. I have a small generator.
I would like to simply plug in the external float charger into an AC 120V outlet receptacle in the trailer. Then plug the shoreline power cord into the generator to provide power to the AC 120V receptacle in the trailer.
Can I leave the charger hooked up to the battery while running 12V
, or do I need to disconnect the battery everytime first?
If this won't work, can't I use a male 7 pin adaptor in the same manner?
I know this is skinning the last cat, but my motivation is money. I have exhausted a lot of it on a complete axle. I don't want to buy a converter/inverter right now. I don't have one, so both AC and DC are independent as of now.
Any Help Appreciated
