When you own an RV, it’s essential to understand your rig’s electrical system. Your RV electrical panel is one of the most critical pieces of equipment you should be familiar with when traveling.
The electrical panel is your RV’s primary point of contact with the electrical power source, whether a shore power connection or a generator.
RV electrical panels provide power to the RV’s appliances and lights. The panel and the RV’s house batteries are connected.
RV breakers and home breakers serve the same purpose. When too much electricity flow through the electrical system, the breaker stops the flow of electricity.
Fuses are a vital part of any RV electrical panel. Blade fuses are the most common type of fuse used in an RV and come in various sizes.
