Rechargeable house batteries are often used to power recreational vehicles (RVs) because they can store large amounts of energy, which is useful when running appliances that have high power requirements. The best RV house batteries are deep cycle batteries. A deep cycle battery is designed to provide substantial discharge for a long period of time. The lead-acid battery is one type of deep cycle battery. AGM, Gel, Lithium-Ion are also deep cycle batteries.
The benefits of RV house batteries
Some people might not think that house batteries are worth the expense of the battery cost. They might think that it is cheaper to just plug into an outlet. However, there are many benefits to using house batteries. The first benefit of using house batteries is that it is cheaper to run appliances. Instead of continuously running the generator, one can run appliances for hours on end without having to worry about the generator running out of fuel.
The second benefit of using house batteries is that one can leave the RV plugged in for a long period of time. People that use generators to power appliances will need to periodically refuel their generators.
The third benefit of using house batteries is that one can use appliances without having to be plugged into shore power. While plugged into shore power, appliances will be limited to what power is available. When not plugged in, appliances will be able to use as much power as they need.
