I'm suddenly obsessed with the idea of boondocking. Up until now, our idea of boondocking has meant not having sewer hookups
Now that we've been RV'ers for a couple years, I think I'm a bit bored with our close-by hookup camping options. There is a gold mine of FS campgrounds and dispersed areas available around us.
I'm interested in setting up a solar charging system (at least for when the weather cooperates). I will have a generator for backup (at least initially), but my goal is to keep thinks as quiet as possible around camp without giving up too many creature comforts. I know LED lights are a good idea. I probably don't need microwave or AC, but will need the furnace at times. TV would be nice to have the option, but not continuously. Other than that it's just the basic stuff. Maybe charge the cell phones sometimes?
Any suggestions on where to start with panels, controllers, inverters, etc? Lots on the net about all this, but I'm having trouble sorting through it and interested in hearing about what's a good value and any success stories!
