Power converter and chassis battery

Does anyone know if the ACE motorhomes power converter charges the chassis battery? I know the house batteries are conditioned and charged but not sure about the one to start the engine.

Measure the voltage on your chassis battery while plugged in. If the voltage is over 12.7v the battery is being charged. Probably should be more like 13.5v.

It is supposed to charge both chassis and coach.
tenbear's method will verify everything is working as it should.

If you want to learn how your charging system works, download Ed Felker's Vegas/Axis manual and it is explained in great detail in there. I believe the charging system on the ACE is the same as the Vegas/Axis using either a BIRD/Trombetta combination or a BCC - battery control center to charge both the house and chassis batteries simultaneously whether on shore power, generation or engine alternator.
