If your battery is going bad, you might worry that your RV won’t function on your next RV trip. You could be asking, “Will an RV work without a battery?” if you’re considering taking a battery off your RV, you want to make sure it will operate before you take it off.

Will an RV work without a battery?

Yes. As long as your RV is connected to shore power, your RV will work without a battery.

Keep in mind that if your RV’s converter isn’t working, then your RV won’t work. Usually, everything is fine with your RV’s converter so that’s why I said it will work as long as it’s connected to shore power.

It’s always better to have a battery on your RV because you’ll have that as a backup if your shore power does go out.


Having a quality battery on your RV is an important thing if you want to make your RV trip run smoothly.
