In the RV 101 how to video, Mark Polk with RV Education 101 discusses the top 5 tools new RV owners and experienced RV owners alike should keep in their travel trailer or motorhome.
A digital volt meter. This is absolutely essential. You can use it for a quick check of the battery’s state of charge. You can test 12-volt DC circuits and 12-volt fuses. And you can check 120-volt AC circuits and outlets.
In addition to a volt meter, I keep a digital line monitor in the RV. You can use it to test the faulty wiring at the campground before plugging the RV in, and you can use it to monitor AC voltage during your trip.
What does The Battery Minder do? Watch how it charges the battery, it maintains and desulfates the battery and will never overcharge the battery.
You not only want an accurate RV tire inflation gauge, but you want one with a dual foot design and one that is capable of checking high air pressure like what is typically found in motorhome tires.
Finally, I don’t recommend using air compressors at gas stations for two reasons, one is they are abused and you don’t know if the inflation pressure is accurate, and two is if you check the tire pressure when the tires are hot you get inaccurate readings, which can be dangerous. This is why you might want to consider purchasing a portable air compressor.
