The house batteries in my trailer did not want to hold a charge anymore. I replaced them with new batteries and I thought that would do the trick. It did seem to make things better, for a while at least. A month later and the lights in the RV were dimming again. These batteries are brand new so I knew that I must have another problem. I got out my multimeter and started troubleshooting. I checked the batteries with the cables removed. I had low voltage across the batteries. Next, …

We are very happy with this improvement.

This place offered some of the best pulled-pork and pit-ham you could find anywhere. This will also be the last time we will be visiting The Underground Cheesecake Company. We …

Following our trip back from Myrtle Beach, I noticed the voltage on our house battery was extremely low. The fridge even agreed with me and displayed an error to let me know. Before our trip to the beach, I found the two 6-volt batteries I had installed were not working very well. So I replaced them with the 12-volt battery which originally came with the trailer. The 6-volt batteries were the ones in our trailer that our RV dealer left connected while they had my RV in for service over …
