RV Buzz Cold Weather Battery Tip

In cold temperatures it’s important that both the starting battery and coach batteries remain fully charged. A discharged or partially charged battery will freeze much faster than a charged battery. Batteries in storage will lose a percentage of the charge while they sit idle. It’s not uncommon for a battery to discharge up to 10% a month when it is in storage. Cold temperatures slow this natural discharge process down and warmer temperatures speed the process up. You should test the stored battery state of charge every month and charge batteries that are at or below an 80% state of charge. Properly watering a lead-acid battery is important too.
