Trickle Charge

Do I need to turn the coach power back on to trickle charge the batteries while in storage?

what coach power are you referring to? 120V or 12V ?

what outlet is the Trickle charger plugged into ?? one in the coach or one in the storage facility?

Trickle Charge

It would be to charge the batteries with 110 power from the storage facility.

You need to be plugged into 110/120V. If you coach is equipped with a storage power cut out switch, make sure it is on...

ok I assume you have the trickle charger hooked directly to the batterys then also
If so your good the go +nothing needs to be on in the coach


or is the trickle charger you referring to actually not a trickle charger and in fact is the converter system in the Motor home ?

Trickle Charge

I am sorry for the confusion. I plan to connect the power cord using a drop down plugging into 110V.
Our previous coach allowed for a trickle charge to the batteries even though the master power switch was off.

Thanks

Your BIRD system will look after the chassis and house batteries when plugged into shore power. Leave the Master Switch turned on.
If you have wet cell house batteries, you should check them every 6-8 weeks to make sure they do not run dry which will ruin them.
