I have personal experience on Bounders, Beaver's and HRs (about the same year as your coach) that do not charge the house batteries from the alternator.
That Bounder had a defective wiring, then, because all Bounders (and Paces & Southwinds and Excursions and Discoverys and Providences....) are factory equipped with the necessary gear to chargethe house while driving. And the chassis while on shore power too. It's standard with Fleetwood Class A's.

This one just won't die, will it? LOL
I've even seen "challenges" asking for factory docs on one of these coaches that don't have this functionality...not sure they've ever been produced.
While I think this may have been the case on some of the much older coaches from the 80s, I don't think it's been the case for many years.
