Running a dehumidifier I winter

We have a 2018 FC and I am running a 120v dehumidifier in the winter months( Houston Tx area), and keep my RV plugged in to 20 amp service to power the DH. Knowing the system has a trickle charger built in will this cause an over charge situation that will damage my batteries?
I have to keep the disconnect switch on in order to power the receptacle that the DH is plugged into.
I keep the unit locked up in my fully enclosed storage unit. Keep doors closed to get the best benefit of the DH.

Look in the owner's manual and related paperwork that came with your 2018 AS, and find out what brand and model of battery charger/converter you have. Chances are good that you have a newer 4-stage model which should do fine IMO.
