I’m assuming the battery charges while the generator or running, my question is ca I back feed through the 12v output plug with float charger to keep battery charged while stored or do I need to hard wire in another plug off the battery?
Thanks Cajunman

Welcome to the forum! Do you measure voltage at that 12V output when the engine is off? If so, it might be OK to back-feed through it to charge the battery. If not, I'd imagine it's not connected to the battery is a useable way.

I don't have one of these. But just personally, I'd feel more comfortable connecting the charger to the battery directly (vs back-feeding through the 12V outlet), you know that's going to be safe. Some chargers come with quick-connect leads, which you can leave attached to the battery terminals, making it easier to connect, vs clipping leads directly onto the battery.
