Anyone have a favorite?  Looked back at some old threads, but didn't see anyone mentioning anything recently.
I went with a Tacklife CM01A. The deciding factor for me was that it shows both AC and DC current. I used the DC current to trace a battery drain, worked really well.

I agree with Jon on several features. AC and DC is very useful in coach diagnostics. Big
Display is for old eyes. Ability to test capacitors is useful.

I forgot to add, I have the same meter, just in a different exterior case. Mine was branded Southwire, and I bought it at Lowe’s some years ago for twice the price Jon linked.
Perfect. Thanks a bunch!
Richard gave some excellent advice that I failed to note, I was able to fix my battery charger by replacing a 50 cent capacitor that tested bad.
