Dry camping means using only the RV’s internal utilities such as electricity, water, and sewer. It is important to prepare a different approach if you plan to dry camp, as well as ask yourself additional questions before departing. You should consider the RV’s capacity to accommodate your needs when choosing an RV when planning to dry camp in remote locations instead of full-service campgrounds. Research online and talk to a sales consultant familiar with RVs to discover RV sales.
When you’re dry camping, you need to conserve energy since you won’t have access to unlimited power, water, or sewer connections. You’ll want to turn on lights only when you need them and not flush water down the drain. Here are a few more:
- Do not forget to bring a second supply of drinking water along with your RV’s fresh water tank.
- Emphasize the importance of taking short showers and flushing the toilet less often to the family by explaining the RV’s waste water tank (black).
- Normally, a complete battery provides a certain number of hours of run time and can power certain devices. Air conditioners and microwaves will have to go. An RV can only operate 12-volt appliances if it is powered only by a battery.
- A lot of RVs come with hot water, a cooktop, and a dual-power refrigerator. Propane tanks last for a long time, so you should know how long they will last.
Solar panel battery chargers are becoming increasingly popular among camping communities. During the day when the lights and other electric appliances are not being used, the RV battery can be recharged. There are also converters that allow you to charge your phone, listen to radio, and use fans.
On a dry camping trip, avoid packing unnecessary electrical gadgets. It is important to keep this in mind when packing. Be sure to bring a camping lantern, some Tiki torches, and extra batteries for flashlights. If you use a microwave or have limited refrigeration, stock your food supplies appropriately.
