Battery Charging with Generator?
Recently put my 04 Rexhall into storage ( first time) and disconnected both House & Chassis batteries. After a couple of weeks I decided it was time to recharge the batteries.
1) Reconnected both the battery banks.
2) Turned on the Xantrex 458 charger/inverter
3) Fired-up the 7,500 watt Generator
4) Left it running for 4hrs
5) No Change in battery status....still reading "low" at 11.5 volts
Am I doing something wrong? How long does it take the Generator to move the " neddle"? Should I have the Inverter/ Charger turned on or off to get the max. charging benefit from the generator?
Any advice would be most welcomed!
