Boon Docking in the Anza-Borrego Desert

One Go Power 170 watt solar panel and two batteries is all you need to stay off grid in the Anza-Borrego Desert. Of course it helps when it is spring time and the desert has received a lot of winter rain like this year. Check out my Boon Docking Kit on my website for more information.

Boondocking Bighorn Style - Receive a 30% Tax Credit

This last week was spent installing a 960 watt complete solar system on a Bighorn 5th wheel trailer at the Surf & Turf RV park next to the Del Mar Fairgrounds. The owners recently retired and are starting a lifestyle of full-time RV living. Their next stop is a campground in Carlsbad that does not have electrical hookups. Four more batteries were added to this 5th wheel for a total of 6 batteries and 6 solar panels. The 3000 watt pure sine wave inverter will convert the battery power to 110 volt household power so all the appliances and receptacles will have power while off-grid. The owners will have to switch the fridge to propane gas while boondocking and will use a portable Honda generator to provide back-up power for those cloudy days or very hot days when the air conditioner must be operated.

Starting this year and continuing until the end of 2016 (unless extended) a 30% tax credit can be taken for installing solar on your second home or RV trailer. Now is the time to install solar on your RV.

Portable solar power is a great option while beach camping. Installing a complete solar charging system is the best option for frequent weekend outings or full time RVing.
