The only way to plug anything into a 12v battery

to power your lights
, etc. at the same time as you are charging it?
You can make as many connections as you like to your battery
, and hopefully none are made with alligator clips as they are a temporary connection that will come off. Coach batteries are usually wired to
a fuse buss and multiple connections can be made as needed. Basically all FGRV batteries have both input from a charger and outputs to loads connected at the same time. Older converters used a changeover relay to prevent back feed, newer units use blocking diodes.
