Hello, new to RVing...

HELLO, my husband and I are very new to RVing, and havenít gone yet. We have been familiarizing ourselves in our new to us older RV.
I have probably a real dumb question.... can the electricity or refrigerator run while on the road?

Welcome to the forum! Yes, your fridge can run while traveling if it’s a electric/propane fridge. It can be set (default) to automatically switch between electric and propane when disconnected from shore power.

I don’t know what you mean by electricity running, so here are two answers. 1. You can run the generator while on the road if you want electric. 2. Alternatively, most coaches have an inverter that will produce 120V from the house batteries to limited circuits, but it can run down the batteries depending on the load and if the engine alternator can’t keep up with the load.

So people can help you better, go to the UserCP tab above and create a signature listing your coach model and year.

Happy trails!
