Battery Drain on 2010 Honda Odyssey?

by Keith Mayeaux
(Prairieville, LA)

Are there fuses we need to pull on the Toad when towing a 2010 Honda odyssey to keep the battery from draining while towing behind an RV?

A Battery Question

by Frank
(Fla)

I have a smart energy management System Model 900 and a Xantrex 458 inverter/charger. All battery charges are handled by this, except equalizing the batteries. The literature says this must be done manually using the freedom remote control panel or a Link instrument. Totally lost. Any thoughts? Is the EMS a freedom remote or a link instrument, and if so, how do I access a manual function? Believe me, I've tried. Arrgh.

Oops, I meant Smoke Detector :)
by: Corinne

I'm sorry, I just looked and it was one of my smoke detectors that kept going off every time the heater came on. I took the battery out of the alarm closest to the heater.

You have an entirely different thing going on sounds like.

Take the Battery Out
by: Corinne

Yes, take the battery out of the alarm! lol. :) Mine did the same thing every time the heater came on.

I decided to put it out of its misery. :) I'll use my own nose instead. Speaking for myself anyway! :) lol.

Charging Camper Battery - Carriage Fifth Wheel

by Brenda
(TX)

I purchased a 1992 Carriage Fifth Wheel and I am having trouble keeping the Camper battery charged. The battery runs the water pump and some lights. When I have the fifth wheel plugged into a power source, the battery does not charge, so when I use the water pump, etc., it wears down the battery.

I also don't know how the inverter is supposed to work, since it doesn't seem to power anything when it's on. The pump runs fine when it's off. I've been charging my battery unhooked from the camper to try and keep it charged up, but the camper should be charging it up. My other camper charged my battery with no problem.

I took a voltage reading and the voltage output coming from the battery leads that hookup to the battery is about 14.3, but for some reason it is not going into the battery. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Just bought a 2001 Fleetwood Fiesta. The generator just makes a clicking noise when I try to start so I wanted to check the battery, but I can't locate the house batteries. Can anyone help me out?

RV Coach Battery

by Maria
(New Hampshire)

We just bought a 2006 R-vision trail-lite 21 ft motorhome last Fall. When we go out (we usually boondock) our coach battery drains very quickly. We have had travel trailers in the past and when we were driving it would charge the coach battery, but on the motorhome this does not seem to happen. Does anyone have any suggestions? We have an on board generator but have forgotten to run it (each day) and the battery gets so low that we can not even turn the generator over. Any help would be appreciated.

Inverter / Battery Charger

Where is the inverter or battery charger located on an 86 Alfa ball hitch tow-able camper trailer and how would I identify it and disconnect it now that I am plugged in to a solar system?
