Love Your RV: Upgrading my RV battery bank and 12 volt system

From the bloggers at Love Your RV.

When we bought our 30 foot Keystone Cougar fifth wheel new it came with one preinstalled deep cycle battery rated at 85 ampere hours. Having camped for many years in a campervan with a similar sized coach battery, I knew that 85 AH capacity wasn’t going to cut it. We were headed off on a one-year journey and planned to do some off the grid dry camping.

I decided to increase our battery capacity and purchase a pair of six-volt golf cart batteries rated at 225 AH. I installed them alongside the original 12-volt deep cycle battery and included a switch so I could use them as separate banks. Since then I’ve used the pair of 6-volt batteries as our main boondocking power source with the single 12-volt battery as a backup source.
