To get maximum enjoyment from your RV experience, keeping the “lights on” is a necessity. In this video class, you’ll learn must-have insights and tips regarding the operation and maintenance of a 12-Volt Deep Cycle battery system.

Your class will start with a walk-through of what components operate on the 12-volt system, such as interior lights, ceiling vents, water pump and several appliances that run on LP.

Your instructor, Dave Solberg, shows the difference between typical 12-volt deep cycle batteries and 6-volt deep cycle batteries that are connected in series to create a 12-volt system, as well as the difference between them and typical automotive batteries.

You’ll get an in-depth look at the distribution center to show how your battery or batteries provide power to components and how they’re protected. We’ll cover lead acid batteries that have been the main source of power in RVs for years, but also the main source of frustration.

You’ll learn about parasitic drain and, after watching this class, you’ll be able to determine if you have a parasitic drain on the house batteries and help identify what is causing it.

When it comes to taking care of your batteries, this class will provide the proper steps for maintenance, charging, and storage to extend their life.

Troubleshooting your 12-volt system is another important area we’ll cover, and it can be a daunting task as negative ground issues can become “gremlins” in a chassis foundation. In the class, you’ll see how bypassing the original ground with a test wire can save you hours of frustration and fix an issue quickly.

And you’ll learn how using a simple multimeter can make troubleshooting a breeze. Our RVIA Certified Master Technician shows you the basics of using a multimeter, the proper settings, and what to look for in troubleshooting the various 12-Volt components.

In addition to the detailed video instruction you’ll receive, this online class provides you with some downloadable resources and helpful information to print and keep, including: A detailed Class Guide you can follow and use as a reminder for the key points of the class instruction; and a few resource documents that will help you get the most out of your 12-Volt battery operation.

NOTE: You’ll receive this Class video instruction in two forms: As on-demand streaming video (in your RV Account); and as a physical DVD, mailed to you.
