Low battery

I have a 2011 313re with the lippert automatic leveling system. This 5ver seems to drain the baterries with mini um use. I upgraded to bigger amp 6 volt batteries but it still seems to drain them. Also when the batteries voltage drops below 12 v the water pump will run continuously unless you turn it off. I have also had the experience of all the power shutting off for a few seconds and then come back on. Has anybody else had these problems. If you aren't plugged in all the time do you have to recharge the batteries daily.

The power going out sounds like a bad circuit breaker up by the batteries, tripping then resetting.

Depending on usage you may have to charge batteries everyday.

The breaker will
A) trip if overloaded.
Or
B) is bad and needs replaced.


Sounds like you may have a big draw.
With no shore power .
Fridge requires 12 v
Water heater requires 12v
Water pump requires 12 v
