In this video, I go through and show 5 different electrical testers/monitors I have aboard our RV. Included are my multimeter, non-contact voltage tester, clamp-on amp meter, surge protector, and battery system monitor.
I talk a bit about how I use them and why they are useful to me in our RV to keep the electrical systems running smoothly and prevent failures.
Unless you are confident in your abilities and electrical knowledge most things are best left to the professionals. Any time you tamper with or modify the OEM electrical circuits you are running a risk. The least case scenario you void a warranty or insurance and worse case you cause catastrophic damage or death to you or a loved one.
Having said all that there are still ways to monitor the rigs electrical system and some simple tests you can perform relatively safely. In this blog post, I’ll list the electrical test/monitoring equipment we have on board the RV and how I use it to keep us safe and the electrical system running smoothly.
