Travel With Kevin and Ruth: We didn’t understand 12 volt batteries — Part 3

From the bloggers at Travel With Kevin and Ruth.

If your batteries are down to the 50% level, it will take about three hours worth of driving to bring them back up to full charge. In travel trailers and fifth wheel trailers, your house batteries will charge if  your trailer wiring connector is wired to provide that charge.
