76' Surfside - Does the battey charge when shore power is plugged in?

Hi can anyone tell me (or tell me how I can tell) if the battery charges when shore power is plugged in on a 76 Surfside? Thanks.

Sorry every trailer is different depending on how it was wired but you should purchase a small battery monitor - plugs into the trailers 12V plug to see what state the battery is in - its a good thing to have with you while camping and you can get them for under $15.

One as simple as this one will do the trick You can find at most automotive stores, Canadian Tire or Wally World.

Hi Dave, to FiberglassRV, we're glad you're here. What can you tell us about your Surfside? Maybe that will help with some answers. Like does it have an converter?

Post pictures where you can. We like pics
