My 2011 31RKS came from the factory with a Progressive Dynamics 45 amp smart charger, one of the best in the business. It has a three stage charger, and "boils" the battery every 22 hours to keep the batterey healthy. Whatever is left over after the power requirements of the trailer is what goes into the battery. Usually very little is needed for running the 12V stuff, so it is entirely possible that you could get as much as 35-40 amps of charging. That is far more than you can get from the tow vehicle, which is limited simply by the wire size from the tow vehicle.
