Digital Voltmeters, Surge Protection and RV Travel

by | Sep 22, 2018

Many of us in the RV community have a digital voltmeter. I hear often from others they have a digital voltmeter, but no clue how to use or fear using due to the unfamiliarity of working with AC or DC power. We created this video as a mini course to show how a digital voltmeter can be used when camping, along with the safety concerns when measuring live power.

We also discuss other devices that have digital voltmeter functions, but may serve additional needs such as RV surge protectors and AC watt meters. We discuss their use, benefits and practical applications in day-to-day RV living.
