Solera Electrical Questions

Ok...who knows the answers?

The Solera coach batteries get charged up by:

- the chassis engine running
- being plugged into shore power
- the generator
- all of the above

Assuming the battery disconnect is on, all of the above.

All of the above...although the disconnect thing is changing on future models.

We'll connect the charge line straight to the batteries from the convertor. (but don't count on that yet)

Yes... And if you drive in reverse your gas tank fills up and the electric company mails you a check for adding power to the grid.....
What a wonderful RV!

JamesR, I laughed out loud here at work. Thanks, I needed that!

Remeber Ferris Bueller's Day Off? Don't forget that driving in reverse also takes miles off the odometer. Nice!

JamesR - cute! But my electric company actually DOES pay me for adding power to the grid (although not from my RV - just from my house) so not that unrealistic!
