DC Voltmeter Mod

I had a DC Voltmeter and Switch at home already so I installed this on our 23ss today to monitor battery voltage. Added the switch to turn on/off the display so I can reduce battery consumption when boondocking.

Went to Home Depot today and bought 5x5 vinyl fence post, gutter, etc to install a RV sewer holder. I made a couple of hangers out of flat steel stock that I already had at home. I will install next weekend.

Here's the DC voltmeter:

Picked them up on eBay about a year ago - less than $10 including S&H for a couple of them. I installed one on my previous trailer and it was working fine.

Search for DC Voltmeter - there are quite a few sellers that ship from China, Hongkong. You can also pick up AC Voltmeters.

Size is approx. 75mm X 35 mm.
