Default wheele house battery chargeing

i have a converter in my house coverts 110v to 12v and charges the battery what i want to do is add another battery in parallel to get more run time so i don't have to run the generator as much and i also have an electric auger that i run
will the converter charge both batteries any thoughts or experience with adding batteries too the house is welcome
thought about adding a 2 bank charger like the boat and leave it plugged in all the time but don't know if i will have an issue with the converter trying to charge at the same time

An ice fishing house that has axles that allow you to lower the house to ice level.

I would not charge 2 batteries in parallel. Plus the converter that came with the house has a low charging rate if it's like mine. I'm going to be putting in a 2 battery bank charger in mine,and pull the charging fuse in the converter. Good luck

I think it depends on the output of your converter. You should be able to find that out by doing a search using the model number of the unit. The converter on my enclosed snowmobile trailer easily charges the 2 onboard batteries.

run them in parallel. use the inverter. Been doing it for years. never had a problem. I also have four batteries in my boat, two batteries in parallel ,and the three bank charger keeps them all charged just fine. Just takes a little longer to charge when having two in parallel
.
Have you thought about solar charger at all?
