RV Power: Batteries, Generators , and Wiring
Power is the name of the game when it comes to enjoying all of the amenities your RV has to offer. The beauty of a recreational vehicle is that you can explore the wide open countryside without giving up the comforts of home. We're not talking about pitching a tent here, and cooking up a can of spam on your bunsen burner. With your RV you can park in the shade of the Vermillion Cliffs of Arizona and cook a five course meal on the same stove you would have at home, with Mozart playing on your home entertainment system, and the family playing cards in the controlled climate provided by the simple push of a button on your air conditioner. Now that's power!
Where is all that power coming from? Are you on the grid or off the grid?
If you are in an RV park, more than likely you have plugged your RV into an AC power source - you are on the grid. But what happens when you are dry camping?
The mobile nature of rv's rely on a solid and dependable source of battery power to not only support typical vehicular operations but additional non engine systems like lighting, slide outs, water pumps & waste disposal, air conditioning, electronic and kitchen appliances and so much more. Typical automotive batteries simply won't provide the power your RV demands. There are many batteries available depending on the particular needs and living amenities off your RV. Oregon Motorcoach Center can help you with any battery power solution you seek, whether it's a battery replacement, upgrade or battery charging options.
