The coach batteries in your Roadtrek are sealed AGM batteries. Do not attempt to open them. There is no user maintenance
possible on these batteries except keeping them charged. MP59
The door just in front of the rear tire on the passenger side is for the batteries. These are maintenance free AGM
There is no user maintenance possible on these batteries except keeping them charged - you never have to add water to
The four indicator lights for the battery are low, fair, good, and charging. Battery voltage dips under load; the greater the load
the greater the voltage dip. A battery under heavy load will show much lower state than one at rest. MP92
Charging your batteries MP59
Inverter-Charger - Your Roadtrek is equipped with a inverter-charger which converts 120 volt AC (household current) to
12 volts DC when you are connected to shore power or running the optional gasoline generator. This 120 volt power is
used to power your 12VDC appliances as well as charge your batteries. Whenever you are receiving either source of 120 volt
power, you are charging your batteries.
Standard Alternator Charger and Battery Isolator - While driving, your Roadtrek will also charge the coach batteries
from the vehicle alternator through an isolator. The isolator allows extra vehicle alternator-produced electricity to charge your
coach batteries in addition to keeping your engine (chassis) battery charged. When the vehicle engine is not running, it breaks
the electrical connection between your coach batteries and your engine battery, so your engine battery remains charged to
start your engine even though you are using coach battery power while camped. This is all automatic - there are no user
adjustments possible to the isolator.
The Sure Power Industries Inc. Battery Separator is designed for use in multi-battery applications as a solenoid priority
system to protect the chassis charging system from excessive loading while allowing auxiliary batteries to be charged. The
BATTERY SEPARATOR has two basic operational characteristics: assist in engine starting and protect the charging.
