This is just confirming anyways what we Sparkies know and some insights for those lay people who are considering batteries and DC loads in general.
If I understand this correctly.You are switching the golf cart to parallel 12V . Then paralleling the golf car to the RV's 12V system.
Certainly using the Xantrex charger on the two combined golfcart and RV battery banks is the right thing to do.
Now if the golf cart and RV systems are connected for an extended period of time while not charging or supplying RV loads. The two battery banks will slow discharge each other.
It takes a bunch of solar panels to provide usable power for housing. As your RV is LP everything except for lights, water pump, stereo, Air conditioning and microwave. Excluding the AC load. The 200W panel isn't enough as it only makes usable power for 6 hours a day. 500W solar would not be too much.
The primary problem with batteries is when Bubba figures he has a DC load that requires 90 amp hour of capacity and purchases an 100 amp hour battery bank. Or poor Bubba purchases an all electric car with 100 miles of range to drive 90 mile trips.
In either case Bubba should have purchased 300amp hours worth of batteries. Or use his 100 mile range electric car for 30 mile trips.
