Never in a million years did we think we’d being doing this thing called boondocking when we bought even our first RV. However, look at us now five years later. But it didn’t come without learning what to have and not have when we’re out there living off the grid in our fifth wheel. So before cold-starting your first boondocking experience, we’ve put together our recommended RV boondocking gear buying guide.
In the past year, we’ve absolutely fallen in love with the boondocking concept and off-the-grid parking. Nothing beats parking out in the middle of BLM areas, desert, mountains, lakes, and even farms not having to rely on a power pedestal for our electrical power.
There’s lots to be said for being ‘totally self contained’ and truly meaning it!
In the past few weeks, we’ve connected with Battle Born Batteries to form a partnership through a social media collaboration. We are excited to take on this relationship with this amazing company. We will be utilizing our blog and social media venues to share our experiences and feedback to not only, Battle Born Batteries but also nomadic and boondocking RVers, Campers and the boating community who are seeking greater energy storage options.
The whole point of RV boondocking is to camp in quiet, remote places whether it’s on BLM land, on the beach, on a farm or in someone’s driveway. However, that comes with a price. Six months into our newfound boondocking enjoyment, we decided to upgrade our fifth wheel with solar panels and an efficient energy management system.
In late 2016, we purchased two WEN 56200i 2000 watt generators for our
Landmark 365 fifth wheel. We planned to use them for limited dry camping (boondocking) and for emergency backup power for our coach. This portable 2000 watt inverter generators generator can be run in parallel with another that provides up to 4000 watts and 30 amps. Here’s our Product Review of the Wen 56200i 2000 watt Generator:
