Should We Keep Our RV Connected To Home Electrical To Maintain Batteries?
(Las Vegas, Nv )
My husband keeps our 5th wheel continually connected to 110 electric while stored alongside our house. He has explained to me he does this to keep batteries charged. Is this a good practice are can this cause other issues?
There should be no problem keeping your 5th wheel plugged into your house electric. The only thing that should be done is the electrolyte levels in your RV's batteries should be checked a minimum of once a month. Since the batteries are undergoing frequent charging cycles while plugged in to electric the electrolytes can get low. The batteries should be topped off with distilled water not tap water. If the electrolytes get too low; it can damage the batteries.
