New owner of Forest River Berkshire

Hello all, thanks for the opportunity to join the community.

I read through a forum here about toad batteries going dead while towing. I have that issue, and noticed that several people said they had ran a heavier charging wire and ground wire to alleviate the issue. I would like to try that; could someone please provide more details? Many thanks!

Hi ! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined us!

Congrats on the new rig! It will help if you tell us what kind of toad you have.
Have fun and keep her between the ditches!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

Are you pulling the fuses as shown in the owners manual? Also shut off the heater. Start the car at each stop to charge the battery. Our 2012 Traverse has no issues if this is done. Only 1 time with a dead battery after driving 10 hrs with no start.
