Battery Charging?

This is more of a general question. But I have 3 x 12v batteries wired up so that it will provide a longer lasting 12v battery. My question is how long would they take to get to full charge? I think they are at 50% capacity at the moment.

How are you charging them? With the converter in the camper, a solar panel, from the tow vehicle, with a battery charger???........

Oh sorry I am using my 110v house power with a battery charger before my camping trip. If there is enough sun I'll trickle charge them while camping.

About 3 times as long as to charge one battery.

Battery chargers come in different sizes, usually designated in amperes. If you have a large battery charger, like 20+ amps, you can charge these batteries overnight. If you have a little trickle charger - one or two amps - it will take days to charge.
