So when my EU3000 genny is running, it is charging my.....

Battery? I am trying to understand this whole power system in my t30, no manuals. Any insight and basic explanations would be welcome. I'm getting it, but slowly.

Hi Wayne,

That sounds correct, assuming the battery is connected to the trailer and the trailer is plugged into the genny. However, I would recommend a secondary charger if you plan on boondocking a lot. The on board charger charges, but not a lot and not very fast.

Yes, you are MUCH better off using a portable charger to do this type of charging..unless you upgrade your on-board charger to a better/more efficient charger.
