Chassis batteries charging on phaeton

I was wondering if anyone can tell me whether the chassis battery charges on a phaeton when you're sitting in a campground. My previous coach would not charge without a battery minder attached.

Can not speak to a 2014. My 2003 Phaeton does not. Have a battery minder. Many told me for several years that it DID - WRONG. Perhaps like so many Tiffin issues EVERY unit (even within a model or a year) can be very different as they make updates/changes at will and the 'manual' leaves an awful lot to the imagination.

My 2014 Phaeton 42LH came with a Trickle Charge installed. It should be located in one of your bays that has a 110 outlet.
