I own several battery chargers, but have never owned one over 10 amps.
If your setup is still stock from Sunline the wire size and fuses for that matter will not allow 35 amps to charge the battery.
I had a stock 60 amp American Enterprises convertor and it is even fused at 30 amps up by the battery. That breaker never tripped as the no 6 awg wire has way too much resistance to allow that large of a charge.
Odds are high that the 35 amp convertor will be allow about 12 maybe 15 amps to go to the battery "if" the battery is drained enough to accept that kind of a charge and the remainder will be left over the run the inside of the TT.
I agree, you will get more charge out of the genny running the convertor then using the genny 12 vdc to charge with.
Hope this helps
