How to Get the Most Out of Your RV

Markham residents introduce 2 safety features advertised by Towing Service USA on the side of your RV that may prevent you from ever experiencing another accident.

1. Every occupied lot has a Power-lock Box installed by PTO. Every occupied lot has a Power-lock Box installed by PTO. Power-lock Boxes save your boat, travel trailer or ATV from thieves. There is more than one clever way these batteries can be disabled. Perhaps you have left your laptop, i-pod on or some other electronic device powered down without the keys in it. Perhaps you left your headlights on all night or left the headlights on through the day. Those types of behaviors could result in losing your battery and becoming stranded in an accident. When you do not want an intruder or thief to attempt an attack you put a Power-lock Box in place.

The second safety feature advertised on the side of a PTO is called a battery breaker bar. This is a beefed up grill that easily contacts the edge of your bumper, grille, or window if it is not strong enough to fit your battery and frame. But don’t purchase a big battery breaker bar because it will only questioning your physical strength to get it to work every time you need it. Smaller battery breaker bars that fit your car easily include deep cycle batteries. These types of batter haveable by hand alone in a short period of time only. This is great for the handicapped or retired person who does not have access to a regular LPG system.

The PTO has a rating system for its white balance of 600 cold cranking amps. The number could be either domesticated or wild. Domestic battery rundowns can be easily discovered for just a few minutes in the morning, by placing your keys in the ignition and cranking the engine. The engine will silent for a few seconds then execute the test. The cranking noise is the false noise caused from the normal radio silent mode, since the engine is on and the transmission is in neutral. The wilder batteries can go into what is called a deep cycle battery cycle. In a deep cycle battery the time interruption is greater. It is used when the deep cycle battery cannot recharge the high cranking amps of a conventional battery. A conventional battery in is in a deep cycle state when it does not recharge enough to get a true cylinder in deep cycle. There is a mixture of white cranking amps and red cranking amps. These are called primary, secondary and hybrid. A P technic can utilize all six of these to get the correct cranking ratio to perform at its Peak.

For example if the battery in vehicle is rated at 20 amp hour capacity and you run it to its maximum of 35 amps, the output is leveling at about 120 CCA. If you put the load off the alternator, the car would be running a constant 60-40 alternator as the battery outputs would be levels off the alternator output. If the system is connecting the battery on the passenger side door jam, the load would no longer be on the battery. The green cranking is the constant 3600 amps you would see in the off mode. The cranking for the load on the low amp hours in the off mode. If the system is in the city and the battery is not in the vehicle, you may need to get a 3600 or 5700 amp hour battery. You can use a charger if you have one and turn the system on with all amp hours turned on. If you want the shorter active time and red light in use you can use a utility depth charger. These would be the batteries that you would find on a boat or RV. Make sure you get a battery with a maximum amperage charge rating. You can find these in fish tanks at electric distributors. When you plug in the inverter there is a cable that should stay plugged in the jack that is directly connected to the inverter. You must be sure the cable is not accidentally plugged into the wrong jack marked for the inverter. When the vehicles turns on the used car battery will automatically turn on the charger. The charger will stay connected and the red light will stay on. This will tell you the battery is “fullcharged”. The battery will supply you with an exact amount of amperage. The more amperage the more the capacity of the battery. Most cars willtested by the manufacturer and they will recommend the exact amperage that you need. If the capacity is not given, it means that the battery cannot supply the required amperage.

While all 12 volt require a recharge, some of the batteries may have the ability to give out A/C power, but still require a recharge. Ask the sales person not to leave the window open so that you can monitor the battery’s capacity.
