Josh, the RV nerd stated the volume above the liquid level in your propane tank contains, “empty air.” It’s not empty and it’s not air. The volume above the liquid level is gaseous propane.

Josh, the RV nerd provided inaccurate information on RV battery care. He stated that RV batteries should be removed and put on a trickle charger when your RV will not be used for a while. Contrary to that advice, many RV’s have “smart” 3 phase battery chargers. It could be their converter or their inverter depending on the RV. These 3 phase chargers are far superior to trickle chargers in maintaining your RV battery in top condition. If you have one and you can keep your RV plugged in when parked you should NOT remove your battery. Simply leave your RV plugged in and your battery disconnect switch in “Use/ON”. He also stated you should store your battery indoors to protect it from the cold. However, a charged battery will not freeze and crack. Finally he stated the battery should be stored on a board and not directly on the floor. This is a myth based on battery technology 50 years ago. Modern battery cases are impervious to moisture.
