RE: charging batteries

First determine what batteries you have. 12VDC will have six caps and 6VDC will have three. AGM batteries are maintenance free batteries so there will be no caps on them. Since you indicate fluids are full you have STD or wet cell batteries. Finally, look at the batteries and let us know if the positive of one connects to the positive or negative post of the other....a google search will give you lots of info on AGM and Gel....Dennis Each battery has six caps so I'm assuming they are both 12 volts. The positive of one does connect to the positive of the other

charging batteries

I need to put a charger on my house batteries. There are 2 batteries that run in parallel. The fluids are all full. The charger I have will charge AGM, STD, or GEL batteries. I'm assuming these would be STD batteries? Also, with two batteries, there are two positive posts and two negative posts. Do I attach to two of the posts on the same battery? Right now, my voltage meter shows around 5.00 on each battery. THANKS BTW, what are AGM and GEL batteries?

RE: House Batteries

I disconnect the chassis battery. I have a switch for both the house and chassis battery. I had an issue with the chassis battery draining. Talked to Winnebago, they said the chassis is not being charged when using shore power. I bought a trik-l-charge and need it install it. My switch for the house batteries(2) is turned on.

House Batteries

I want to clarify something. I have my 2014 Winnebago parked long term for the summer at my cabin. I have it plugged into shore power(50amp). I throw the disconnect for the chassis battery so as to not drain it from smoke detectors, etc. It's my understanding that when plugged into shore power, it will keep the house batteries charged. Correct? I had an issue earlier when I was going to run generator. I disconnected from shore power and the panel inside showed there was no voltage in the house batteries. Tried to start generator but wouldn't start. Didn't have power to even run lights in the coach. House battery fluids are good and batteries are only a couple years old. Suggestions?

Chassis battery issue

I have a 2014 Winnebago sightseer. During the summer I have it parked at my cabin and plugged into 50amp shore power 24x7. After being gone for a couple weeks, I came back up and my chassis battery level basically drained(It's less than a year old). I know that if I store it, I need to switch the coach and chassis batteries off. But I thought as long as I was plugged into shore power, the chassis should keep a charge. The coach battery is normal. I was hoping to start the unit using the battery boost switch and charge the chassis battery, but that wouldn't work either. SUGGESTIONS appreciated.... THANKS

Hard water stains

What's the best way to remove hard water stains from the side of your coach? I get some periodic dripping from refrig venting and from roof air conditioners that run down the side. Leaves a white streak. I'm assuming it's due to hard water.

chassis battery

Is there a way to figure out what on a coach is pulling juice from the chassis battery and/or house battery? I know my front retracting night shades draw from chassis, but not sure what else. THANKS

What is this make?

My son is looking at buying a 1974 travel trailer. He said it's about 15ft long. Trying to figure out who made this. It's the only pic I have. THANKS https:www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/1029173947416063/ height=3 width=5

Replacing Horn

I need to replace the horn on my 2014 Winnebago Sightseer. It's a Ford F53 Chassis. It looks like the power wires that go to the horn are of a plug and play type. Is this correct? If so, it seems like the replacement should be a simple fix. Thanks

MasterTow Dolly

I have a MasterTow dolly with which I tow my Pontiac Vibe. Went to hook it up today and noticed that one of the "support" bars was broke. There are two bars that go from the main tongue and connect just under the plates where the front tires would sit. They are only about an inch in diameter. I'm hoping to get it to the place I bought it first thing in the morning and get an "emergency" fix. I'm wondering if using it with the broke arm would cause problems. THANKS
