Chassis Battery Charging on the Berk

I think this has been previously discussed before, but I can't find the answer.

Does hook up to shore power charge the chassis batteries too?

Thanks,
Ken

Yes; it is supposed to.
Search for battery control center (BCC) for more complete answers.
I just answered this about 2 hours ago.

It is my understanding that it does charge the chassis batteries after the house batteries are full.
When it starts charging the chassis batteries, the AUX switch will glow or flash.

Our 2015 XL does as Dan says (blinking).

Could you post your BCC manual?
The copy (of a copy) I have failed to mention that.

I always wondered why I would sometimes see that blink out of the corner of my eye.

Thanks to all.

Ah ha! That blink I'm always seeing but hadn't yet identified. Thx for figuring that out for me.

Btw, I spoke with Mike at FR about the charging from alternator because a repair shop told be mine wasn't doing that.
Mike said that only a few older rv's were set up to not charge house batteries from the alternator.
