Finally Understand How Your Electrical System Works
Join our comprehensive RV electricity class to understand how many watts each appliance uses, the differences between 30, 50, and 15/20-amp service, and which appliances require battery power to operate. We’ll discuss the types of batteries used in RVs, methods for recharging them and the safety issues when overloading your RV circuit breaker. After this class, you'll be able to confidently determine which appliances can safely be used at the same time without damaging your RV's electrical system.
This article is an additional resource for our RV Electricity Made Easy class, which we offer to RV parks and campgrounds. This article is designed to complement the class handouts, and it features direct links to the videos and products mentioned during the session.
