When buying motorhome, you may be faced with the decision on what kind of RV onboard generator will you want; diesel or propane. After seven years on the road in three different RVs, we now feel comfortable discussing the differences between the two in motorhomes. As well, we’ll share the pros and cons between diesel versus propane generators.
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.
We purchased two WEN 2000 watt generators to act as our emergency backup power to our RV fifth wheel. We’d also use them for boondocking and dry camping off the grid. Our two portable 2000 watt inverter generators can run in parallel; providing up to 4000 watts and 30 amp electrical output for half the price as the leading portable generator competitors!
Our former RV fifth wheel toy hauler was equipped with an awesome propane stove and oven. However, I wanted another cooking alternative when our RV was hooked up to electricity so we didn’t waste our propane. And then I found this; an induction cooktop to use inside my RV kitchen and outside for another reason.
