Gens

A regular construction type gen is a lot louder than an inverter gen, but cost about 1/3 of the inverter gens. Tractor Supply has the 4,650/4,000 on sale for $335 where as your inverter gens of that size will cost upward of $1,300. TS also have smaller units by Champion for really low prices [3500/4000 for $299]
If you just want a gen to recharge your batteries, then a 2,000 Watt unit would do. Very small and light weight. About $175 last I looked.

main difference is noise level. quietness costs more.

you said you have a generator, what brand/size is it?
if it's an open-frame contractor type generator, it's not appropriate for a campground.

Battery is on the rig. Does anyone know how long to fully charge it? The rig is plugged into a power outlet.

You should have had the store check its charge before you left with it.
They could have topped it off, with a quick charger.
Without knowing what percentage it was when you picked it up, no way you can accurately answer your question.

So the Walmart didn't have an Auto Center?
If you didn't pay attention to which wires go where, you may have crossed them and blown a fuse or 12v breaker, when you put the battery in.

It didn't. Just an auto care aisle. There are 2 wires coming off the trailer. One is red and one is white. The red is on red and the white is on the other. I'll check the fuses
