Avoid RV Battery Failures on the Road

If you’ve ever had an RV battery failure when you are on the road, you know that it causes a very annoying interruption in your trip. Especially because you sit there, with a dead battery that can’t be resurrected, knowing you probably could have prevented it!

  • Regular Maintenance: One of the most important things you can do to prevent RV battery failures is to ensure regular maintenance. This includes checking the water levels in your battery, cleaning the terminals, and making sure all connections are secure. By keeping up with maintenance, you can catch any issues before they become major problems.

  • Invest in a Battery Monitor: A battery monitor can be a great investment for RV owners. These devices track the state of charge of your battery and alert you when it is getting low. This can help prevent over-discharging, which can lead to permanent damage to your battery.

  • Limit Parasitic Draws: Many RVs have parasitic draws that slowly drain the battery even when everything is turned off. To prevent this, make sure all lights and appliances are turned off when not in use, unplug any unnecessary devices, and consider installing a disconnect switch to completely cut off power when your RV is not in use.

RV battery failures can be frustrating and inconvenient, so remember to stay on top of maintenance, invest in a battery monitor, utilize solar panels, and limit parasitic draws. With these precautions in place, you can enjoy worry-free travels knowing that your RV battery is well taken care of.
