Default Anyone have a Coachman Saratoga

I guess I'm lazy because I don't want to take out the back cabinet to get at the battery to experiment but here is my question. If I draw down the house battery does the generator start on the vehicle battery or won't I be able to start it?

If your house battery is too low to start your generator start your van's engine. It will supply current to your house battery which will then let you start the generator which should charge the house battery fairly quickly.

I thought that was the way it should work just wasn't sure. I can check charging with a meter and take off the cables but I really don't want to draw down a battery just to experiment.

I see bobo35 on rv.net say it's the vehicle battery on his 1994 Saratoga.
