Charge light question

The other day I'd spent all day out at a friend's ranch. I took the RV, as I had the pups with me, and that's the best way to have them along but be able to keep them from bothering people and horses.
When I got home that night, I went to the rear door to get the pups, and noticed the charge light on my power panel was on. Thought it was odd, considering I hadn't been plugged in, nor run the generator, and the ignition/engine was OFF.
This isn't something I would have normally seen, since there's a cover for the panel that is normally closed; it had come open, obviously, but the next morning, it was off. Battery was still up & charged, nothing else had changed.
So is this just something that lingers "on" for a while after I've been driving the thing, or am I seeing things? Not that I notice a lot, in the grand scheme of things; I still don't know who shot JR.

I can not answer that.. However I can tell you the light on the Progressive Dynamics CHARGE WIZARD is powered by the battery.. So it will stay on without any shore or generator power.

If this is one of the old PD Series Power Centers with a Charge Sentinel then the service manual says the board is defective if light is ON after 115AC is disconnected.

Thanks. It's probably that I just haven't noticed it before now, then.

Dave, I appreciate your input, also. It's just that I wasn't connected to either generator nor shore power in the last few weeks, even, and the light was off in the morning. Great info, guys.
