JuniorBirdMan Posted July 2, 2009 Share Posted July 2, 2009 I accidentally ran across an interesting event and wondered if some of you electrical wizards could help answer some questions. I was powering the Nest Egg with the Honda generator set on eco throttle. The car was still attached to the Ollie. I went into the car to "crack" the windows a bit and when I turned the ignition on I could hear the Honda revving up. Wondering if was just a coincidence, I did it again with the same result. Questions: Is the Honda trying to charge the car battery or is it just powering the systems? Is there any danger in this? (small gauge wires, blown diodes, etc?) Could this be an emergency way of charging a weak starting battery? Any and all help is appreciated. BTW, there appears to have been no ill effects to either electrical system, but the ignition was only left on for a few seconds.
