Footnote:   Because of battery charging via the vehicle not giving a full charge (normal), we installed a Ridge Ryder DC to DC charger in the caravan for charging the Caravan house battery while driving.  Worked great and gave us up to 30% more battery power when free camping.  Diagram showing Caravan charging panel  Caravan charging panel
