Have any of you considered setting up a second battery in there too? Does anyone do anything to the battery as part of the winterization process?
Plugging into shore power sends 110v to your
distribution panel and to your converter which
reduces the voltage down to 12V to power
your coach and charge your house batteries.
Your alernator on your engine charges your
chassis battery. You can easily add solar
to both systems. If you store for more than a
month, you will need to tend to all of your batteries.
