Thanks. jimbo
You don't need to worry about the amperage of the alternator, you need to worry about getting the full voltage to the trailer battery. Generally, this is done by using heavy gauge wire (at least 10 gauge), all the way from the TV battery to the trailer battery.

Another alternative is to use a DC/DC charger which actually steps up the voltage automatically even with a smaller wire.

DC Input Battery Chargers for 12 volt Lead Acid and SLA Batteries useful for electric golf trolley
