For RVers who remain mystified by their RV's electrical systems--120-volt alternating current (AC) and 12-volt direct current (DC)--this book provides a better understanding of what electricity is and what it does in your RV.
This problem-solving reference answers questions such as: "Why do interior lights dim or burn out rapidly?" and "Why won't the batteries recharge after a night without electricity?" Learn how to repair and improve electrical systems; how to troubleshoot faulty brakes, taillights and "house" circuits; how to detect dangerous shorts, faulty grounds, inadequate connections, malfunctioning switches, dead battery cells or current leakage; and much more. Contains all you need to know about RV electricity, including:

  • How to safely use a campground hookup.

  • How to increase battery charging efficiency.

  • How to take the pulse of your AC and DC electrical systems.

  • How to recognize and correct dangerous wiring practices.

  • How to troubleshoot electrical problems of all types.

  • How to upgrade your RV from fuses to circuit breakers.

  • How to calculate your electrical needs and upgrade your system to meet them.

  • How to select the most effective components--batteries, alternator, regulator, converter, charger, generator and solar panels.

  • How to recognize phantom electrical loads that can drain your batteries.

    Authors Bill and Jan Moeller have lived a mobile lifestyle for more than 20 years, during which they have had much experience overcoming problems with and upgrading their 12- and 120-volt electrical systems. At present, as they have done for many years, the Moellers live fulltime in their fifth-wheel trailer and travel the year round. In addition to writing books, including RVing Basics, the Moellers also write a nationally syndicated newspaper column about RVing.Paperback, 272 pages.
