Smile Charging a battery in a caravan

I have a 2012 Grand Cherokee Jeep and I have recently purchased a caravan with an Anderson plug and battery pack. When enquiring about adding a plug to the jeep to charge the caravan battery I was told that the jeep was unique in that it could not carry enough of a charge to charge the caravan and that I would need an additional DC to DC charger to boost the charge in the caravan.
Has anyone else experienced this, I.e a straightforward Anderson plug on the car not supplying enough power to charge the caravan battery ?

Thanks for any advice that can be provided. I have also been advised to fit a solenoid to the car so that the caravan only takes power from the car when the ignition is on.

The Pom.
