As far as I can tell all the interior lights are the same except for the one over the dinning table? I need to know the following, which LED lights would you reccomend, I have read on here about soft white etc. but do they just plug in to recepticle or do I have to do extra wiring. I know this is a dumb question to many but I do not know. I have read to spend about $20.00 apiece but still need advice. These are for as stated above a Roo 2013 233S. I am not an electrician and so Herk don't get to tech. with me, Ha.
. Also might need to replace batteries with better ones like Trojans etc. any advice would be appreciated. Also, I have a Schumacher battery charger (Auto Switch) between quick charge and trickle. Need advice on charging batteries, do I remove caps each charge, when do I add distilled water etc. Not easy for me to get to batteries with bed out. Thanks in advance for any advice and here's to a safe & great camping season for all.
I answered your bulb Q's in your other thread.
As for batteries, you first need to calculate, or at least estimate, you're power useage. What kind of camping are you doing and how long will you be off the grid and without a generator?
Trojans are quality and reliable batteries. There are other brands, too. Most of these manufacturers offer 12volt and 6 volt batteries. That's a more in depth discussion to have one you estimate your power use.
What model Schumacher is it? Quick charge is not a mode I would use with deep cycle batteries without knowing how many amps it's putting out.

You will not be able to maintain the batteries too well with the bunk down. It can be done, but best to do maintenance with it up.
