  1. How Do MH Engine Batteries Receive Their Charge?

    I have no idea. The only information I can find on the cables is Essex 1/0GASEJ1127TYPESGT105C. Doing a little research online it's a 1/0 wire size so I'll probably stay with that or go to a 2/0.

    I am going to replace my battery cables on my 4 house batteries, 6v deep cycle. What size cable should I use? What is proper gauge in wiring these in series? Is 2 or 4 gauge OK for house batteries?

    Thanks for the info. I do have some green colored corrosion. Would a bad battery control circuit board cause house batteries to not charge?

    Ok, if it's not the battery cables what else could cause the low VDC reading I'm getting?

    QUESTION: Can the battery cables be bad and need to be replaced? I had the inverter is turned on with a steady light and the charger is turned on with blinking green light. Does having the inverter/charger turned on make a difference in the VDC reading.

    Ok, I checked the connections. I'm unplugged from Shore Power. I checked two house batteries in series and I'm now getting 12.41 VDC I checked the other two house batteries in series and I'm getting 12.38 VDC Everything is turned off/unplugged in MH accept refrigerator in AC mode.

    I tested the volts on the house batteries individually (disconnected) and two of the batteries read 6.39v, one reads 6.38v and one read 6.40v. QUESTION: My understanding is a 6-volt battery that is charged should read 6.25 to 6.37. So wouldn't this indicate the house batteries are ok?

    I have not taken the house batteries to have them load tested yet. I tested the chassis and house batteries with the volt meter again this morning. This time I had everything in the MH turned off and unplugged. Only appliance turned on was the refrigerator in AC mode. Here is the voltage readings I am getting now. Plugged into Shore power Voltage at chassis batteries tested in series: 14.01vVoltage at house banks batteries tested in series: 14.00v Unplugged from Shore power Voltage at chassis batteries tested in series: 12.82vVoltage at house banks batteries tested in series: 12.04v QUESTION: Is the voltage reading for the chassis batteries normal? That is a big drop in voltage on the chassis batteries from plugged in vs unplugged. The chassis batteries are brand new and installed last week.

    Ok, I will get them charged and load tested and go from there. Could the charger on my Inverter/Charger be bad and not charging the house batteries? Is there a way to test the charger?

    When I disconnected from shore power and tested the voltage on the house banks I did see 12.8v then started dropping and stopped at 12.02v. Just confirming this is not normal correct?

    Ok, when I disconnected from shore power and tested the voltage I did see 12.8v then started dropping then stopped at 12.02v No appliances were on except the refrigerator was on AC. Would the refrigerator cause the drop?

    HOW LONG WAS IT ON SHORE POWER BEFORE YOU UNPLUGGED AND TESTED VOLTAGE? We have been on shore power for 22 hours. My MH has an inverter/charger. Could the charger be bad? If so, is there a way to test it?
  13. How Do MH Engine Batteries Receive Their Charge?

    Was the inverter on? YES How old are your house batteries? 4 MONTHS OLD. THE DAY WE INSTALLED THE HOUSE BATTERIES WE ALSO TRAVELED THE SAME DAY. How long was the shore power off before you took the battery voltage reading? 1 MINUTE

    When plugged into shore power, my two refrigerator and two TV's were turned on, laptop plugged in charging and bedroom lights turned on. When unplugged the two TV's were off, laptop plugged not sure if it was charging and bedroom lights stayed on. I used a multimeter by Klein Tools to test the batteries. The charger/inverter was turned ON.
