Keep ODYSSEY® Batteries in Mind This Spring When Vacationing in Your RV

According to the RV Industry Association (RVIA), more than 11 million households now own a Recreational Vehicle (RV), a 62% increase since 2001 and a 124% gain since 1980. The recent popularity in RV ownership is largely influenced by younger generations and families who live an active outdoor lifestyle as well as baby boomers who are entering retirement. Now that spring has arrived, and travel enthusiasts are eager to get outdoors and start enjoying the warmer weather, many will look to their RV to get them through their journey ahead and make their vacation a time of enjoyment and overall convenience. Our selection of high-performance and virtually maintenance-free ODYSSEY® Performance and ODYSSEY® Extreme dual purpose batteries are the ideal power solution for RV seasonal renters and full-time owners. These batteries are capable of starting the engine while powering other onboard electronics over the course of a full day.

ODYSSEY® batteries are manufactured with advanced Thin Plate Pure Lead (TPPL) technology, delivering twice the overall power and three times the life of conventional flooded lead acid batteries. Made from pure lead and built to protect against high impact shock and vibration that cause premature battery failure, ODYSSEY® batteries also offer slower self-discharge rates, less corrosion and faster recharging than other batteries. Backed by an industry-leading warranty, they offer a two-year storage life at 77°F (25°C), and up to 10-year service life. They can also perform in extreme temperatures as low as -40ºF (-40ºC) to as high as 176ºF (80ºC). Always be sure to follow the manufacturer’s guidelines for battery care and handling and direct any questions to your battery professional.
