Don't let a dead RV battery spoil the fun
Powerstride Battery offers a variety of RV batteries from trusted brands like Lifeline, U.S. Battery, and of course, Powerstride. If you are getting less life out of your battery, but you are not sure if it's time for a new one, follow these steps:
- Invest in a digital voltmeter (you can get a low-cost one for around $30)
- Charge the battery completely, then connect the prongs of the voltmeter to the correct terminals of the battery
- Start the engine and check the meter. A healthy 12 volt RV battery should maintain a range from 9.5 - 10.5 volts under the load for a good 30 seconds straight
- If the battery drops steadily under load, it is probably time to buy a new one
Failing to perform regular maintenance and care of your RV battery will result in needing to replace the battery every 2-3 years. But with some basic maintenance, you should be able to extend the life of your battery significantly. Click here for some RV battery maintenance tips.
