1) while my unit is parked, its plugged into a shore line, what switches should be where to assure that all battery's are being charged?
2) how often should the rv be started up and run until norm temps are reached and should it be driven?
3) If the prophane tank is full, what should the gauge read?
Thanks for any and all help here.
Hi Doug and Darlene,
Congratulations as a first time owner of a Class A coach.
Re: #1 When connected to shore power, we leave both coach and chassis battery disconnect switches ON. You should check the battery water level once a month or so.
Re: #2 Ours is a 13 year old gas powered coach so we don't usually start it up and let it run nor drive it unless we're going on a trip.
However once a month I disconnect from shore power, start generator and run it for about 20 minutes with a load from either roof AC units or 110vac hot water heater. Then after removing load I let it run for about 5 minutes and shut it down.
Re: #3 Propane tanks can only be filled to 80% capacity, so when full guage may read less than full.
Good luck with your new coach and enjoy many fun, safe and trouble free journeys..
