Vehicle Battery Access?

New to forum but a real Mechanical know nothing
Hello We have Thoro Vegas 24.1 2018 Model
When plugged in to home 20amp service
Does this maintain the coach batteries?
The 2 beneath the entry steps

How do we access the vehicle batteries
We don't use the RV as often as we would like
concerned about dead battery
At present I run the vehicle, AC and generator bi-weekly for about 60min
Is this overdoing
Thanks for input

Bob Johnson

I do not own a Vegas, but love reading Ed Felker's manual. Try it out!

If you leave it plugged in and in "Use"/on your batteries should charge.

The chassis (vehicle) battery is under the passenger side "desk"--you can access it through the front "hood". Have to reach in and move around the two vent hoses (be careful that the hoses don't rest on the battery terminal as a short could result).
