Question

Can this battery package be used with a generator system, which doesn't charge at very low rpms?

My 'system' is hooked up to a shore power battery charger/tender as well as the engine charging system. This system wil charge your start battery first then automatically charge your reserve or house battery. When switch is off the charger takes over charging both. I'm not sure what your concern is but as long as you're putting current out your batteries will be charged no matter if you're using a generator or whatever.

Question

Do the batteries have to be identical? or one for the cca for motor and another for house battery?

That is not really an Automatic Charging Relay (ACR) issue . It will work with mismatched batteries, but they may not charge properly. The ACR does away with the need for a high CCA battery. You are getting full use of both batteries until their combined voltage drops below 12.5. Then the ACR seperates or isolates them. That way leaving a light on all night won't kill your starting battery. It will still have a hefty 12.5 charge sitting on the shelf waiting for you. In my boat I try to keep the batteries equal in every way so that a weaker doesn't drain the stronger and the charging cycles are more or less equal. If you want a starting battery and a deep cycle battery I would recommend one of the new "smart" chargers and manually Turn the ACR off during the charge cycle. Dave
