The OP wanted to know is it ok to plug in at home using an extension cord and the pig tail just overnight to keep the batteries charged?
The answer is 'yes' depending on what he mean by 'pigtail.'
OP has also not returned to the site since posting the question.

I just camped for days in the trailer because my wife was COVID positive. Fridge was on AC (absorption type), water heater on electric, and A/C running, converter on. I had zero issues. No tripping breakers, no hot electrical connections.
A way to figure out why it worked so well is to conduct a load inventory. Make a list of the devices, figure out the amperage they pull, and figure out which ones run at the same time as others. What you see in that will tell you why it worked for you. There's no mystery to it- just tedium.
