Thumbs up

Thanks for the info - 2 6v golf cart batteries it is. I like the KISS idea.

And thank you Mr Rabbit for letting me butt in.

That was the last day of a three day trip so I didn’t charge with the generator really at all on that trip. I drove home about 2 1/2 hours and the batteries SOC was somewhere in the mid to high 80s when I got home, if I’m remembering correctly.

I normally do plug the shore power cord into the generator and let the OEM charger charge the batteries. The charger is a 8900 series WFCO I think. It is a three stage charger. It typically takes about an hour of running the generator to charge the batteries 10%.

I usually run the generator about an hour every day to top off the batteries while I’m making coffee.
