Nice good to know bud im
Sure I’ll be firing away with questions soon enough lol think my first question would be how do I find out my weight of my rv ? I’ve seen people say that it is on your door but I can’t seem to find it . Also there is a plaque near the drivers window but doesn’t say there either

should be above the drivers side window or try looking in all your cuboards, the rv builders tend to stick a sheet with all relevent info on , on the inside of a door. What make and model rv have you got

Ok thanks good stuff I’ll check also could
You tell me how many batterys I need to keep it flowing nicely I have bought a brand new battery but it seems to play up now and then I need to jump start it and I’ve seen videos on YouTube with 2 battery’s in them. It is a beast so I’m assuming it need more battery’s for the size of it and the engine size

Welcome to the forum! There are bound to be questions, so just ask away in your own time and someone will have an answer. What RV do you have?

Greetings ,
I have only 1 battery to turn my 7.4 petrol engine over, but my truck I have 2 with a split charge relay due to all the extras I had fitted on it (5.7 gmc crew cab with winch etc added).
and I have 2 inline leisure batteries to last me through the night
