Welcome to RV Technician.
This spring edition of the magazine starts with an article on generator troubleshooting with a multimeter. Submitted by Greg Wischmeyer, standards inspector/certified technician for RVIA, it provides a detailed explanation of how to quickly and efficiently diagnose faulty generator systems. Using the multimeter to pinpoint problems, says Wischmeyer, is faster and easier than swapping out parts until things run properly again.
Finally, there are two companion articles about today’s battery technology and maintenance. These stories, by Vicki Hall of Trojan Battery Co., will tell you all you need to know about the different kinds of batteries used in RVs and how they vary by use and maintenance.
Don’t forget to check out the information on technician certification and cert preparation on pages 24-25 — make this the year you commit to taking your skills and knowledge another rung higher.
