In dry camping, you do not have electricity, water, or sewer hookups and rely solely on the RV’s internal utilities. If you plan on dry camping, you should prepare a different approach and ask yourself additional questions before you leave. When shopping for an RV, it is essential to consider how well it is equipped to accommodate your needs if you are considering dry camping in remote locations rather than full-service campgrounds. The best way to discover RV sales is to talk to a sales consultant who is familiar with RVs as well as research online.
A dry camping trip requires conservation since you won’t have unlimited power, water, or sewer connections. There are a few good dry camping habits, such as turning on lights only when needed and not flushing water down the drain wastefully. Here are some more:
- Ensure your RV’s fresh water tank is large enough to accommodate drinking water, and do not forget to bring a second drinking water supply.
- Make sure that the family understands the capacity of the RV’s waste water tank (black) and emphasize the importance of taking short showers & flushing the toilet less frequently.
- A complete battery will provide you with a certain number of hours of run time and will be able to power certain items. You will have to say goodbye to luxury items such as air conditioners and microwaves. If a battery is the only power source, RVs can only power 12-volt appliances.
- RVs often come with dual-power refrigerators as well as hot water and cooktops. Therefore, you should know how long your propane tanks will last.
Camping communities are increasingly using solar panel battery chargers. The RV battery can be recharged during the day when no electricity is being used by the lights or other electric appliances. Also, you can buy converters that will allow you to charge cell phones, use fans, and listen to radios.
Don’t bring unnecessary electrical gadgets on a dry camping trip. This is one of the best thinking you can have when packing. You should bring board games, flashlights with extra batteries, a camping lantern, and some Tiki torches. If you have limited refrigeration and use microwave cooking, it’s also a good idea to stock your food supplies accordingly.
