I'm really thinking that the battery
charging function on my onboard converter/inverter/battery charger thingy is not working. It's a magnatek with the battery
I had the trailer plugged in over the weekend and the monitor panel in the trailer said the battery
was 'Good' (as opposed to the other options of 'Fair' and 'Poor'), but as soon as the trailer was unplugged the panel then read 'Poor' and poor it is - not enough juice for one light
My main question for now is: How do I test the battery charging function specifically to see if it is working at all?
This is the multimeter I have, but to be honest - no laughing - I'm afraid of it. Electrical
work is not my forte.
Ya, silly, I know, but I have this fear that I'm going to put something in the wrong place and blow something up - so, it's over a year old and never been out of the package
On a side note, I do already have a great three stage charger: This One
, but the problem with using it is that I have to pull the battery every time as I don't want to leave the charger out in the back alley as I'm sure it would grow legs and walk away. So, it would be nice to have a more permanent solution. (Although if I ever get that garage built, then it would be a non-issue.)
