Question about Vehicle Parts & Accessories
How do I connect a DC 4.5-30V 0-10A Dual LED Digital Volt meter Ammeter Voltage AMP Power to my RV battery
If you want to read just the DC VOLTAGE of your RV battery , with the multimeter in the proper VOLTS range , you would simply connect the red lead to the positive feed and the black lead to the negative feed and read the digital display of the meter.
Whenever you want to read DC AMPERAGE with a multimeter , first set the meter for it's highest amps. Then you must connect the meter leads in SERIES somewhere within the circuit. This means that you will have to first create an OPEN in the circuit and then connect one lead from the meter to one side of the open and the other meter lead to the other wire . For example : let's say we would cut one wire going to a light bulb and then we would connect the AMP meter between the 2 ends of the cut wire , we could now read the AMPERAGE or SERIES FLOW of the current that the bulb draws when it is powered on.
Remember , NEVER connect the AMP METER directly across a powered circuit. It's like putting a direct short across the circuit.
Be sure to select the proper AMPS range setting on the meter before connecting the meter to a circuit. I recommend starting with the HIGH amps setting first to get an idea of just how much the circuit being tested actually draws when it it powered on. If you would happen to first start with a lower amps range , you might blow the protective fuse located usually inside the multimeter. Do no exceed the range of amperage that the meter is rated for.
