THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT YOUR RV BATTERY BOX

One of the most important pieces of hardware in your RV is the battery. It’s crucial for the battery to be reliable so it can provide you with power that is essential for your RV to operate. Aside from a high quality battery you also need an RV battery box to make sure the battery is completely protected from all the elements. The battery box will also protect you and prevent you from getting shocked with a dangerous charge of electricity.


RV batteries and RV battery boxes are easy to find and purchase but before you go and get the first ones you see, you should consider a few things to make sure you are getting the best battery and battery box for your needs.


DIFFERENT TYPES OF BATTERIES

Your RV uses different types of batteries for different purposes. One battery is used to start your RV while the second type of battery is in charge of running all the amenities in your RV like lights, water, kitchen appliances, TV, and so on. The first type of battery is a 12-volt battery and these kinds of batteries are mainly used when your engine is on. The second type of battery is 6-volts and they can sustain producing power for much longer which is why they can be used even when your RV is turned off. Depending on how long you plan to camp in one place without a hook-up, you may need more 6-volt batteries so you don’t run out of power. Some people opt to get a marine battery which can do the work of both 12-volt and 6-volt batteries but most of them are not so great to use for deep cycle and they don’t last long.


BATTERY PRICES

The battery prices vary depending on which type of battery you need. The 12-volt batteries are priced between $20 and $100 depending on the brand. The 6-volt batteries used for the deep-cycle are priced between $30 and $170 depending on the brand of the battery.


WHAT IS AN RV BATTERY BOX?

A battery box is an essential piece of equipment that will protect your battery from the outside elements. It’s usually made of lightweight material that is corrosion resistant and provides protection from UV exposure, battery acid leaks, water, gas, and so on. Although the battery box is lightweight, the material used to make it is heavy duty and able to protect your battery against unwanted liquids. This box is essential because it protects one of the most important parts of your RV. Without it, you are constantly in danger of losing power and getting stranded in the middle of the road or a secluded camping spot.


A solar panel is made up of many smaller sections that are known as cells and are made from multiple layers of a semi-conducting material such as silicon. As sunlight shines on these cells, it creates a flow of electricity. Each of the cells works together to generate Direct Current (DC), which will then be converted into usable Alternating Current (AC) by solar inverters to power your electrical devices.
