Living in an RV, electricity is of key importance. Having good batteries and a charging system are crucial. With a well-designed system is a top priority. Our system- with care- can support us for about 2 weeks. And while a nice RV hookup can keep you going indefinitely, even a 15 amp wall outlet can be enough.
But other consumables like propane and diesel are finite, so all efforts need to be made to supplement the electrical capacity. If you can get your refrigerator and creature comforts like heating off of propane and onto the electrical, the longer you’ll last. Future plans include a 1200 watt solar array which should keep our batteries charged even during heavy use (cold nights using electric heaters). With minimal use of propane we can stretch the standard propane tank to months.
