Battery charging

On a 2014 Georgetown XL 377TS does the inverter/charger charge the starting batteries while its charging the house batteries while plugged into shore power?

Maybe someone else can be more exact than I can, but here is an easy way to find out--

Get you a digital voltmeter, while connected to shore power, and check the voltage across the house batteries. You should read 13.3v to 13. 8v, or so. If you read the same voltage across the chassis battery(s) your getting charged through the converter. Caution- Do it at night if you have a solar panel on the roof.

If you read about 12.3v on the chassis battery(s) your not getting charged through the converter.

Hi rparker,
Welcome to iRV2. Your question is very brand specific. Consider posting this question in the Forest River Owners forum on iRV2. Go to Forest River Owners Forum - iRV2 Forums . There you will find many owners who know more about your coach than anyone else.
