OK Kids, some people, like my Mother, need to type in caps so they can see what they have typed better.
I am almost there myself.
Anyway, thats a good question. Not knowing a TON about auto electric, I am curious how that works myself. I just had my charge line done, and will be using it this week for long periods of time WITH the fridge
going. Since I will be staying where there are hook ups, and not having a big fear of the battery dying and leaving me stranded, I can try to remember to check the voltages pre and post tow with fridge
I suspect the answer is NO, since I haven't heard of a single person complaining they boiled thier battery from being connected. Folks do it all the time, for thousands of miles.
Now, I have a part deux of this question. I replaced my car battery the other day (It was getting to be that time and I didn't want it to breath it's last breaths on the road, so I did it as a precaution) and I noted the charge line is tapped directly off the positive terminal of my battery, with an inline fuse.
Whats the difference in doing it that way, or tapping off the alternater. I don't remember where I saw it, but it seems I read going from the alternater is really the correct way to do it.
I may be wrong in how they did it, and thats just a new line from the alternater to the battery. I haven't drilled down too deep in there. And when it's 28 degrees out, and it ain't broke.. I don't feel compelled to look.
