This will seem very basic for many RV folks. I've noticed that many, many RV'ers seem to be very technical people. But I think there are a few very simple articles I need to write to help new folks along and I get to double check my facts and learn along the way.
This is going to be the first article in a series of 3 or 4 in the next few days that attempts to address a few simple electrical basics. I have written a short article on RV electrical basics AC versus DC, but I want to keep going.
I thought about this article series because a friend of a friend of mine sells a thing called powermaster. Powermaster is a device that (for now I'll just be brief so go with it) basically ‘fixes' wimpy electrical systems.
There were a few questions that came from powermaster in my mind…
- Are wimpy electrical systems commonplace in RV parks?
- Will it really hurt your appliances if you have a wimpy electrical system?
- How much fixing can something do?
- What are the implications of fixing?
