The gen is wired to the 110v AC electrical system. What ever is charged with your converter should charge with shore power or gen.
The gen is usually started using the house batteries.

To check start the generator turn on some lights, take a volt meter check the volts going to the house batt. with the lights on 13 volts or close to it generator through converter is charging house batt. Now go to the chassis batt. is it getting 13 volt or close to it, if yes generator and converter are charging the chassis batt. if not 13 volt or close to it then no it is not charging the chassis batt.

If your asking which battery bank is used for starting you generator, Fleetwood wired the generator to the house batteries.
