      RitaB August 9, 2020 I agree with Seann. There are also a lot of You Tube videos on Boondocking. I don't do much Boondocking or dry camping, but I did get a second battery and have a portable solar suitcase to help recharge them. You will also have to be very careful with water use.

      Suzan and Art August 9, 2020 So much depends on what you feel is important while Boondocking (or RVing in general).  Start out with an overnight and see what you miss and what you need. I wouldn't spend thousands on a great solar system until you have some experience RVing and d...  more

        TheClearyClan August 10, 2020 @Packratphyls, 50 odd years ago when I was a teenager, Mom would fill gallon milk containers with soup and put them in the deep freeze about a week before we would go camping.

      Jeep Guy August 11, 2020 You dont need solar to go boondocking if you have a generator. Its nice, but not a requirement. Conserve your water, conserve your power usage. Run your genny for a few hours to recharge your batteries as needed. (We run it while we prepare dinner,, maybe...  more
