Simple as Pie. Understanding Your RVs Electrical Systems

Are you ready to head out on your next RV camping adventure? Before you go, it’s important to have a basic understanding of your RV’s electrical system. Many of the conveniences you find in your RV—everything from the lights, refrigerator and furnace to your slide out rooms—require electricity.  

Your RVs electrical system is a combination of 12-volt DC (direct current) and 120-volt AC (alternating current).

The 12-volt system is powered in three different ways—a battery, a converter, and your tow vehicle’s system.  The battery is actually the heart of your 12-volt system, storing the electrical energy from your converter or tow vehicle until you need it. 

The 120-volt system is powered by plugging the shoreline cord into an outside power source or running a generator, if equipped. Once connected you can operate the roof air conditioner, microwave and use 120-volt receptacles throughout the camper.  Even while you are plugged into shore power, your 12-volt systems continues to operate off your battery. However, when plugged into shore power, the converter in your electrical power center panel automatically charges your battery.

In Less than 120 Seconds this Small Trailer Expands to Sleep 10

For many, this is the holy grail of RV design:  A camper that is small and light, yet spacious and loaded with comforts.  A camper that lives BIG and tows easy.  For our money, no RV comes closer to reaching this goal than the Passport and Bullet expandables.

First off, what is an expandable?  You might also see them referred to as “hybrid” trailers. Expandables or hybrids combine many of the benefits of a hard wall/hard top conventional travel trailer with the smaller size and lighter weight of a pop-up camper.

Topped by a solid, one piece roof with solid fiberglass walls, Keystone Passport and Bullet expandables are durable and provide protection against the elements.  Keystone adds extra sleeping capacity without increasing weight by incorporate easy to use, strategically placed fold-out walls in certain areas.

My 11-Year Old Fell In Love with this Trailer at First Sight

When you camp with kids you’re always packing extra gear. Bicycles, kayaks, oversized coolers and other bulky stuff.  Not only that, it seems that the kids are going in and out of the camper non-stop to use the bathroom or grab something from the refrigerator.  Facts of camping life!  So when we saw this new affordable Cougar XLite at our local RV show, we knew it would be perfect for our busy family.

There's lots to love on this new Cougar.  Below are just a few of the features that grabbed our attention.  Watch this RV NEWSCHANNEL Insider Update video for a quick look.

Open Sesame

Plenty of manufacturers are making toy haulers, but few are hitting the market with an open floorplan. The Impact by Fuzion 3118 is taking aim at that market.  One of the new Keystone RVs you will see at RV Shows is this "open concept" toy hauler travel trailer with a huge 18 1/2-foot garage.

Most toy haulers have the garage enclosed and walled off from the rest of the living quarters. This new Impact floorplan does not separate the garage from the kitchen and living area, making the maximum amount of space to squeeze in toys while in transit. “This is built for the demands of the avid ATV/4-wheeler/sand rail enthusiast,” says Jeremiah Dumka, product manager for Fuzion/Impact. “People out there are getting more sand rails and side-by-sides. Their toys are getting bigger. These guys go out,get all their toys in here, take them out to the desert or the mountains and unload. This is something that is built in Elkhart County to our very high standards. … It has the quality of East Coast production, but at a price point that’s going to be attractive to both East and West Coast outdoor enthusiasts.”

Luca's Dream

A  three-year-old will now have a place to enjoy camping with his family when he received his wish to have a travel trailer granted by Keystone RV Co. and Make-A-Wish Ohio, Kentucky & Indiana.

 “Wish kid” Luca Hahn is battling Dravat syndrome, a rare and catastrophic form of intractable epilepsy that begins in infancy. It is a debilitating, life-long condition that can severely impede the quality of life of the patient. Keystone RV heavily discounted the travel trailer, making Luca’s dream of camping “outside” a reality.

“Luca and his wish have captured our hearts and we’re honored to be able to help make his wish come true,”said Jeff Runels, president of Keystone RV. “This Hideout travel trailer will provide a place for Luca to spend time with family and friends and build many memories. We’re excited to have Luca and his family visit our dealer, Walnut Ridge Family RV Sales, and see his face as he received his most heartfelt wish.”
