by Julie T 2/3/2017

BatteryMINDer Chargers Maintain the Condition of Your RV Batteries

by Julie T 1/26/2017
Maintaining the condition of your RV batteries helps to prevent problems brought on by damaged or dead batteries. It may even help to prolong their lifespan. The average lifespan of an RV battery is a few years, however proper maintenance can extend that. Just like the battery in a laptop or mobile device, RV batteries will still continue to discharge even while the RV is not in active use. There is another potential hazard for RV batteries that are left to sit for a long time, called sulfation. Sulfation happens when crystallization forms inside the battery, leading to poor performance or no charge. Using chargers and maintainers such as those from BatteryMINDer can help avoid this issue.
