I don't recommend you run all three at the same time. Wet batteries can only tolerate a certain amount of amperage.
Having said that, I think you will find that the SolarStik will take the place of a considerable amount of charging capability you have been relying on from your genset/charger and diesel/alternator. Especially running your genset just to charge your batteries.
Also the SolarStik comes with an MPPT charge controller that will be easier on your batteries.
