Don’t Let A Dead RV Battery Ruin Your Trip

It’s important to keep an eye on your battery’s health and get it swapped out with a new one when needed.

If you have a motorized RV, your camper will run on a chassis battery (the one that runs your engine) as well as a house battery to power your fridge, interior lights, and other necessities. A towable trailer will only use a house battery.

Monitor your battery’s voltage and make sure it’s holding a charge to avoid any unexpected setbacks on your camping trip.
