The dealers installed the batteries on these campers and they will try to get by with the cheapest battery they can. My camper came with 4 6 volt batteries but they were not Trojans, they were cheap batteries. Soon I will replace them with Trojans, plus a battery water system, on my batteries you can't see the water level in the batteries. My batteries will not hold a charge very well. I am going to have to take the batteries out and check the water, not easy. It looks like Cedar Creek could have found a better place to install the batteries at. The new Trojans will not go there

Is that because they won't fit, or are hard to water, or you don't want them there.

I ask, because I plan to buy a CC 36CKTS with Res. Refrig. & inverter and want to put 4 Trojan T-125 batteries with a watering system in the battery compartment.

My dealer installed Energizers. They have been very good batteries. I bought a small extendable mirror and hydrometer to fill with water as needed. As far as 2 12v batteries I had a camper come into our campsite with only 1 12v and the residential frig. He was having trouble keeping it cool and I wonder why.

Folks I installed during the July 4th holiday the battery watering system from camping world for four 6 volt batteries was very easy and filling is so easy. Highly recommend this. Well worth the $$$.

I had this problem and found out that the inverter was bad. When having it replaced I noticed a whole pile of inverters waiting to be shipped back to Forest River

Question, is the inverter that Cedar Creek installs, are they pure sine wave or modified inverter

I have a Prime Time Sanibel 3601 and it has a pure sine wave type inverter.

Inverter for refrigerator

14 CC 38CK look earlier in the thread. You need to make sure your batteries are wired like the diagram. The diagram in the battery compartment is in correct and CC supplied me with a new diagram that charges all four batteries and increases your amp hours.

Could you post that diagram?

Is there a blocking diode between the fridge batteries and the house battery?

Should it have one?
