i wouldn't have any problem with it. if the charging system in the trailer (converter) was undamaged, it should carry the load w/o a spare charger.

The 110V circuits seem undamaged from the 220V experience with the exception of the microwave, the big refrigerator, and the battery charger. The small outside refrigerator is fine. Outlets are fine. I have been operating 12V systems on the battery all weekend and doing fine. Any reason why I should not proceed with a camping weekend? I would run the refrigerator on propane and bring a digital car charger along. My thought would be to connect the car charger on an auxillary 110V source (even one of the trailer outlets once plugged into a 30 amp source). The charger rate has settings for 2 amps, 10 amps, and 15 amps. I usually use 2 amps but could bump that up if I am running short of battery. It also shuts off when the battery is fully charged. Would this potentially cause problems with the 12V system? I am thinking the fusing in the panel combined with the digital charger should provide adequate protection. Advice?
You'll be fine doing what you ask !
Have fun this weekend!
