Session 4: Battery 101

One of the most important components in a solar system is the batteries because, after all, that’s what you’re trying to charge and to use as fuel to run the electronics inside your rig. In an RV, you have a house battery that’s going to be a deep cycle battery. That means it’s designed to be drawn down to 10.6-volts, recharged to 12.6-volts and that cycle continues as you use electrical devices. There are two different battery voltages that are typically used in RV’s. In this session, we’ll talk about all the types of batteries used in RV’s and how they are connected.
