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.

I very rarely write about non-RV related items, but this little item really deserves my attention. Ever since we purchased our Chevy Silverado Pickup back in 2005 we have had a problem with wind noise coming from the rear vent windows in the cab.
