How to Sell My RV: Tips for BoondockingJanuary 18, 2010 12:00 am
I was wondering how to sell my RV, and I concluded that first off, I need to let people know about the joys of RV living, specifically boondocking. There are obstacles to overcome, sure, but for me that’s part of the fun of it, and I want to make people aware of all of that. That way I can sell my motor home, the old one, and get a new and improved model to even better enjoy the life I love.
When boondocking, dry-camping without electrical (or water or sewage, but that’s another topic) hook-ups, energy conservation is an extremely necessary consideration. Even when you’re using an inverter and solar panels, you still need to watch energy usage carefully. Keep in mind stray electric loads such as televisions. Even when those contraptions are turned off, they’re not totally off. Microwaves have clocks that run continuously. The DSS draws about 30 watts whether it’s on or off.
Only use fluorescent lighting. Regular lighting should be replaced with fluorescent. A rule of thumb is at least two batteries per person. When adding batteries, use a size 00 cable and the shortest length possible.
Think about safety; be aware of your surroundings. Don’t advertise your names, because then someone might knock on your door in the middle of the night, using your name. You’ll answer it, thinking it’s someone you know. Making friends isn’t bad, but use good judgment, and listen to your instincts. Try to park in well-lit areas and somewhat in the open. It’s much easier to be victimized in dark, hidden places.
