    Wildheart RV Repair Club:
    January 21Hi, all. I have a 1997 Coachmen Catalina Lite TT. Since I’ve had it, and with my first 1996 TT, I experienced this same thing, and hoping someone can tell me what’s happening:

    When I’m on shore power, I can operate all of my 12v and 110v electric applian...  more

      Rick & Lil January 21 12v batteries are just that, 12v. When charging, the charger (depending on what kind & brand) will put between 13.6 to 14.2 volts into the battery. It does this to keep the battery healthy. After the charger turns off or is disconnected, the voltage may s...  more

      Jim & Sharon Ham January 21 Your answer is already in your post.  Most 12 volt converters make lousy battery chargers with only about 4 amps output back to the battery.  That is why even after overnight hookup, your battery never tops off.  The cheap solution is a 25-75amp battery c...  more

        MartiL January 21 Jim & Sharon Ham - I'm plagued by the fact that they even "build" a motor home that the electric plugs do not work unless plugged in.  I'm sure you have seen my discussion with John T and I think you even answered me a few times.   As a temporary fix for ...  more

        Wildheart January 21 Jim & Sharon Hamm, thank you! I already have the second type of charger you have listed. Didn't realize I could use it for other purposes, and I think the idea to put more permanent ring terminals on and use a quick disconnect to leave them in place is great.

      Jim & Sharon Ham January 22 To Wildheart: Our house battery is under the entrance step in a tray.  We changed to ring terminals on the battery charger so we could leave it hooked up permanently and stored away under the dinette seat.  Purchased a heavy duty 2-wire golf cart connecto...  more

        Wildheart January 23 Thanks, I have my battery under my bench seat, too. Where would I find that golf cart connector? Is that the term I would search on?

      Jim & Sharon Ham January 22 To MartiL: Our big Schumacher is a great source of emergency power.  We use it primarily to be sure our CPAP breathing machines function all night.  It also is a reliable source to recharge USB devices like tablets, phones, LED searchlights, and Motorola ...  more

        MartiL January 22 Since this is something I'm just finding out since I purchased the motor home - I'm copying and pasting all the responses from everyone into a document to digest at a later date when I return home.  I'm also viewing CheapRVLiving video's and he says the b...  more

      Jim & Sharon Ham January 22 We did not think we would ever use the air compressor built into the Schumacher Battery Charger unit.  And then on the third day we owned it, it was worth it's weight in gold when we ran over a nail and were losing air in a front tire.  It saved us until ...  more

      Wildheart January 23 MartiL, yes -- for solar stuff, Bob is referring to Northern Arizona Sun & Wind -- they respect and cater to RVers, unlike some others. In Quartzsite, there is Solar Bill's and Discount Solar. I have found Solar Bill's friendlier and a bit better prices. ...  more

      MartiL January 23 Thank You!  and sorry for "butting" into your battery/information question.  I bought this motor home after very little research, but it was still a good deal even though I mislead about some things and finding out plugs don't work in RV's.  Haha   I'm pl...  more

      Jim & Sharon Ham January 26 Wildheart: here is the battery golf-cart-type connector we used.  Amazon to the rescue.   MUYI 6-10,12 AWG Battery Quick Connect/Disconnect Wire Harness Plug Connector 50A 12-36V DC (50A 6-10/12AWG (2 PACK), Red Battery Quick Connect) ...  more
