RV Generator usage has become a hot topic amongst RVers and campers; especially when boondocking, dry camping or parking overnight within close proximity to other RVers. The debated questions are: “When and where is it appropriate to run your RV generator?”
Unless your RV is equipped with solar panels, ample batteries with necessary components to provide electricity to your camper, you’ll need to look into portable generators to recharge your RV batteries. But, which generator will power your RV or camper?
When buying motorhome, you may be faced with the decision on which 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. We’ll also share the pros and cons between diesel generators versus propane generators.
Before heading to your first campground with your new RV, you’ll need some basic accessories before hauling out and setting up your campsite. This basic starter kit includes all the RV gear you need to plug into electric, hook up the water, empty your tanks and everything in between.
Before trekking off with your RV to go camping off the grid, there’s some must-have boondocking gear you’ll need to not only enjoy dispersed camping off the grid but survive out in the wild.
We use our WEN 2000 watt inverter generators to act as our emergency backup power to our RV fifth wheel. We also use them for boondocking and dry camping off the grid. In combination, our two portable Wen 2000 watt inverter generators can run in parallel; providing up to 4000 watts and 30 amp electrical output for half the price as other 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.
