No.  Our winter RVs are designed to be fully independent with 4 coach batteries and a generator.  The coach batteries operate the interior lights, water pump and furnace fan.   If you need to use the microwave or 110V electrical outlets when you are not plugged in to an outside electricity source, or you wish to charge the coach batteries, you can do so by operating the generator.

The coach batteries are independent of the engine battery.
