Charging Chassis Batteries

Is it OK to hook up a battery charger to the bank of chassis batteries without disconnecting them?
I am plugged in to AC in my garage.

Do you not have a built in charging system? If you don't, then no problem, just watch that they don't get over charged and boil dry.
Happy Glamping.

I have an inverter/charger hooked up to the house batteries only (I think).

Anyone else have an onboard charger that services the chassis batteries as well as the house batteries?

Most coaches do in fact charge both sets of batteries but, many do not.
You should determine if your coach has this capability or not.
If not, the best solution is to install an aux charging device like the Echo Charger below. It is very simple to install and will maintain the chassis batteries whenever you are plugged into shore power.
Better than using a standalone charger.
