generators & 6 volt batteries

I have a Yamaha 2000i generator. Will this be able to charge two 6 volt batteries? Doug

Yes, as long as you have the two batteries hooked in series to make it a 12v bank. (which I'm assuming is how you have them installed)

You can either use the built in 12v charging port/cable or simply plug your shore power into the generator and allow the converter to charge the batteries.

If I don't have shore power can I plug the generator directly into the TT?

Yes, that's what I referred to when I mentioned plugging your shore power into the generator. (meaning 'shore power' cord)

You will likely need an adapter to go from your 'shore power' cord to the generator.
I don't know what cord you have... 30 or 50 amps... but I believe the Yamaha 2000is only has a 15 amp duplex receptacle on it.

Yep give the trailer's converter a chance to do the charging. Way easier than hooking up a separate charger.

That's what I've been doing with my Honda 2000 for almost 10 years.
