No, if it is getting 120 VAC from the breaker panel it will charge the batteries if they are connected; BUT the generator has the capability to charge the batteries directly through the DC starting circuit just like an automobile engine (check the generator schematic, there's a bridge rectifier back to the batteries), so maybe your converter is bad and the only charging is happening directly from the generator.
