What is the Grid?

Before camping off the grid, you need to understand what “the grid” refers to. Generally, the grid refers to the electrical grid. However, if you are truly looking to go “off the grid” as most campers do, you’ll have to unplug from all hookups for your RV.

Off the Grid Energy

There are a few ways to run your RV off the grid while still enjoying the benefits of some electrical features. Most RVs nowadays come equipped with solar panels, so it’s easy to add additional panels after purchase and increase the power you can pull. Additionally, you can use suit-case-style solar panels and other equipment like Pocket Juice to charge your phone and gadgets.

Clean Water While Camping

You can pack along bottled water for short-term off-the-grid camping and fill your RVs fresh water tank before leaving home. When camping for longer periods of time, you’ll want to bring along a water filtration system. We recommend things like the Life Straw and water purification tablets to add to the water you have boiled to purify it.
