Yes it has a smart charger for both the coach and chassis batteries. It should start for the 1st couple hours charge around 14 volts then down to around 13.7 and then stay at 13.5 as long as either plugged in or running gen. Might want to check it out with a volt meter to make sure it's working correctly. Tom 04 Essex

I see others have posted the link to the manual. So that saves me the trouble of researching it.

But most INVERTER/Converter/Charger combinations are smart chargers.. I mean if you are going to spend that kind of money, they build it right.
