House batteries not charging from generator

Is there a fuse somewhere im not seeing? It charges fine from the chassis and shore power but the gen does not seem to be charging for some reason.
Any help would be great.

Are you getting power for micro and other receptacles? If not there is a breaker on the genny that may have tripped. Also check the converter as well.

It takes a long time to charge. How are you seeing that it's not charging? Are you measuring the voltage at the battery post? I would think that would be the only way to really know what is going on....

I can see the input voltage on the inverter if the batteries are at 12.1 volts then then shouldnt the display change to 13.5 volts when the gen is on like it does like when the chassis is running?

ah, so it seems that your converter isn't charging.

Or do you even have a converter..... is all your charging done through the inverter? I'm not familiar with those set-ups but as I understand it some inverter installations take the place of the converter for charging.
