    Your penny example was good. But you’re basically saying that there’s not enough power to run the things that you expect to run? You didn’t elaborate much. It sounds like you’re saying that you need to shut off the air conditioner if you want to run the microwave or a coffee maker?

    Just came down to the comments to say you have the voice typically heard on so many instructional videos. Interesting to see the face associated with this type of voice. Pleasant 🤗

    Your voice is like butter, and thanks so much for the information.

    Resistance is futile! Be susceptive to trying out this simulator! Encounter circuit solver on the playstore!

    Thanks for all the info! I have a question. Will the converter overcharge your battery if left plugged in for a while?

    Hello, I just bought an old rv. I’m thinking I should do the electrical work first. What do I do to get started?

    Thank you so much! I keep tripping the power in my Mom’s camper in her driveway while I’m staying here for the quarantine! Now I know how to fix it!

    I bought a newer trailer and swapped out the old batteries.  I want to wire them in parallel as I had in my older trailer.  But, this trailer has a blue wire (with a 30 amp inline fuse) a red wire (with a 30 amp inline fuse) and a white (grounded to the frame).  I believe the red goes to the positive terminal, and the white goes to the negative terminal on the other battery.  Where does the blue wire go, positive or negative and which battery?  Hope that makes sense.  Thanks

    Is it correct that when your pig tail / trailer lights are pluged into the tow vehicle it will charge the 12 volt battery also while traveling
