Inverter+Charger or Inverter/charger

My Journey has a 1500w Dimensions modified sine wave inverter/charger. I have tested that it works, but have never used it. MSW bothers me. I also have a 1000w PSW inverter, totally separated from the Dimension, that I use to power my Samsung residential refer, in conjunction with 600w of solar.
My question: would a 2000w inverter, used with a separate battery charger, be a functional modification? I know it would be cheaper, and all I need it for is the coffee pot or whatever when the generator is too much or too loud.

Sure, as long as you get a converter/charger that equels the output of the Inverter/charger.

You want a charger output equal to about 15% of your battery bank capacity, if flooded batteries. If you have AGMs, you can go up to 25% capacity.
