Will the MH generator recharge the house batteries?

First time dry camping with our MH
Question is:
We are planning to dry camp will the generator recharge the house batteries? Our plans are to use the house batteries during the evening and night hours to cool the rig. so for now until we are able to get solar power we need to recharge the house batteries using the generator during the day.

yes your generator will charge the house batteries but your house batteries will not run your air conditioning

Prior to 2015 models, most MHs charging systems don't fully charge the batteries. A 4 phase charger that is set correctly is needed to fully charge your batteries. It will increase the life of your batteries as well. There is info on this in many different areas. Sorry, I can't link from my phone
