Added voltmeter for House Batteries

Added a "Chinese Special" voltmeter to read coach battery voltage. Pretty simple and cost about $20. A few pics below (you may have to click on them to read the print.)

Meter is from Amazon, the duplex cover plate is from Lowes.

Nice mod! I think having a good voltmeter, displaying tenths of a volt, is critical for understanding the charge level of your batteries. A shunt based battery monitor is probably better, but a good voltage display is the minimum requirement. The four light display that Jayco and most other OEMs use is worthless, in my opinion, because it doesn't have enough precision to inform you of battery health/SOC.
