When should I change my RV Battery?

 

Basic and simple maintenance can extend the life of your RV battery. Here are some signs it's time to replace your RV Battery. 

Your RV has no light or power - It happens to us all, even our cars. You sit in your vehicle, turn the key - and nothing. This usually indicates your battery is low or flat-out discharged. 

Leaking Fluid - Any leaking fluid on your RV Battery means your battery may have been damaged ( your RV casing or either the cells ) and needs replacing.

Low to no fluid inside - Fluid levels are a great indication of whether your battery is still good. Be careful, though, as battery acid is poisonous. Always wear safety glasses and gloves when handling a battery. If your RV fluids are below their required capacity, you can refill the fluid. However, if it's completely dried up, you may need to replace your battery.

Corrosion - Corrosion or rust can affect the way your battery output. Simple maintenance or some battery cleaner can help your posts and battery from corrosion. If you're having battery power issues, inspect and clean your battery, wires, and posts.

How to maintain your RV Battery.

 

Properly maintaining your deep-cycle RV battery can last you up to 5 years. Here are some tips on keeping your RV batteries running as long as possible. We always recommend wearing safety gloves and glasses when handling a battery.

  1. If your RV is in storage or not being used and is equipped with a battery disconnect switch, use it as the RV battery has a slow parasitic load such as your clocks, lights, tv antenna power, stereo, and more.​​ This drains your RV battery slowly and can fully discharge your battery if not maintained properly. 

  2. Hot temperatures and overcharging will damage or kill your battery. When it's hot outside, check your battery more frequently and as well when you're battery usage is high. Checking your battery level and adding distilled water when required can save your RV battery.

  3. Whenever you add water, use mineral-free water. Distilled water is the best for RV batteries, as tap water can cause calcium sulfation.

  4. Have regular routine maintenance and recharge your battery in a timely manner. Use a multimeter or battery tester as a battery with 80% or lower may cause sulfation. Sulfation occurs when batteries are discharged and remain on your battery plates. The worse it gets, the more sulfation on your battery will impact battery performance.

  5. Never let your 12-volt battery go below 12 volts. A fully charged 12V battery is at 12.7 volts (confusing, right), which means it's at 100%, while at 12.0, your battery percentage is at 50%. Use a multimeter, so you know when your battery needs recharging.

  6. Charging your battery when it is at 50% will last twice as much compared to when you charge it when it's cycled down to 20%. Reducing your RV battery's depts of discharge increases the life of the battery.
