Electricity the Hard Way

Electricity the Hard Way — For the first year, we camped the hard way – with lead-acid batteries and without solar panels. 

In the second year, we added solar to our lead-acid batteries. During the first two years, we really accomplished a lot and learned how to RV without extensive power needs.

In the third year, we changed RVs and are starting over again.  This year we got an even bigger RV with much higher power demands and even before solar, we first upgraded our battery system to lithium. Our batteries store more power than we would use — for at least two days.
