Located along the shores of one the world’s best-protected harbors, Erie, Pennsylvania, takes claim in pivotal maritime history of the Great Lakes. Erie is the city of all transportation; planes, trains and automobiles, boats and even RVs! Since we have this allure to all things maritime, we decided to tour the city of Erie’s waterfront.
If you’re wanting to take your motorhome, fifth wheel or other camper boondocking or dispersed camping, it’s important to strategically plan everything for your RV boondocking adventure. From gray and black tank management, water conservation to grocery shopping and menu planning, we will show you how we prepare your RV for boondocking. This will take your off-the-grid camping experience to a whole new level.
Since upgrading our RV batteries, solar panels and solar charge controller, our Winnebago View motorhome can now sustain longer-term off-grid boondocking capabilities. We no longer need to be plugged into electric pedestals to produce electricity. Here’s exactly what we did to improve our small Class C motorhome’s solar upgrades.
As we completed our 5th year as full-time RVers or as they say in the RV community ‘nomadiversary’, I felt compelled to write about how our lives have changed; individually and as a long-time married couple. Here’s our candid view of full-time RV Life. We go into what we’ve learned as full-time RV travelers. And, we share some tips on how we deal with issues and circumstances that surround our full-time RV lifestyle.
Just when we thought things couldn’t get any better than our full-time RV lifestyle, we decided to change it up again. After six years of RVing with our big fifth wheel, we decided to shift gears; downsizing our RV from our Landmark fifth wheel for a much smaller Winnebago View Class C Motorhome.
Now, with our 25′ Winnebago View, we’re able to explore more back roads, visit small towns and enjoy countless off-the-beaten-path adventures.
In mid 2018, we installed 600 amp hours of Battle Born GC2 12 volt lithium batteries in our fifth wheel so we could power our RV while camping off the grid. Here’s what we learned and our assessment of these state of the art lithium ion batteries.
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!
