Just the coach. If you want chassis battery charging (which is a good idea) I'd recommend adding the Trik-L-Start from RVupgrades.

My bago and my previous Itasca did not charge the cranking battery bank. I carry a separate die hard battery charger for long stays. A cheap alternative is a single jumper cable from (+) on the cranking bank and the (+) on the deep cycle bank. Caution, however, that if you use that method, you need to make the jump when the cranking bank is fully charged. If significantly discharged, the jumper needs to be a larger gauge wire or you will melt the jumper and it could short out. I speak from experience.

We use the Battery Minder Plus on the chassis battery as the converter only charges the coach batteries.

There is none better...won't overcharge your batteries and de-sulphates your battery automatically...

I second the recomendation on the Trik-L-Start. I have been using one since last summer and it works wonderfully. Anytime you are plugged in or using the generator it will maintain the starting battery. Easy to install, and it works.

I was able to mount the following next to the battery storage compartment & connect it to the chassis battery. It is a Schumacher battery tender (from Advanced Auto) & a "Battery Minder" volt meter (from Batteries Are Us). It is wired in the 120. I can turn it off of shorepower if desired. It keeps my chassis battery charged up (but not over charged).
