To get the longest lifespan out of your RV batteries and the biggest bang for your buck, it’s essential to frequently check acid level while out on the road. Most RV owners understand the importance of keeping an eye on their levels, but it’s easy to forget to do so, and thanks to bulky covers and tight quarters, it can be difficult to get to the batteries when you do remember.

In this lesson, we’ll teach you about a simple tool you can attach to your RV batteries to take the stress out of checking acid levels day after day and fumbling around with equipment. Dave Solberg shows you how to install and operate a hand-pumped water gauge that inserts directly into your batteries for hassle-free level reading. The best part is, once you set up your gauge you can leave it attached to the battery, so no more on again off again with the lids and exhaust tubes. Do yourself a favor and pick up one of these handy tools for your rig—your batteries and wallet will thank you!
