father taught me to always check the fluid level of a
battery. Letting them go is ‘what could be draining my
battery’ situation. Low fluid in a battery is not the
best thing for a battery. Always keep the fluid level up to
the designated fill mark in a battery for each cell. That
does not mean you fill the battery cell to the very top.
There is a lower ring in the cell – so fill with distilled water
to that ring.
What could be draining my battery
you ever left a dome light on in your car and then wondered what could
be draining my battery? It could be a light left on
or a short in wiring somewhere. An RV, such as a motor home,
has over 200 miles of wiring n the rig. All that vibration
of being on the road can break loose wires and of course they
could short out. But, the simple things we miss. If
you are in your RV and it is plugged into electricity the constant
charging that occurs to the battery, can in time, pull down the
water level in the battery. The same thing occurs if you are
Not plugged into electrify. The pull against the battery
will deplete its charge. Further, summer months are not good
on batteries. The constant heat will deplete battery
fluid. All three I just mentioned above create heat on the
battery and the battery electrolyte levels in the cells will go
down. So check and fill the cells every three months.
So if you are wondering what
could be draining my battery, then check your lights
being left on and if that isn’t it then look for other places such
a short in a wire. Usually a shorted out wire will deplete
the battery charge quite quickly whereby lights will be a more
