Deep cell battery

Just bought our first camper. Wolf Pup 16bhs. Will it hurt the battery to keep the camper hooked to house power all the time?

No I leave mine plugged in 24/7 but keep an eye on your battery levels.

Welcome to the forum and the world of RVing. You can keep it plugged in just check the batterys if the are not the enclosed type to make sure they do not run dry. Enjoy your camper Later RJD

No as long as they are charged they will not freeze. They will freeze and crack however if they become discharged. No different that your car or truck battery.

If your camper has a triple stage charger than you should be ok. However, if your charger just puts out 13.8 volts then it will damage your battery in the long run.
