Have you considered living off the grid in your RV? I’ve been full-time RVing for the past 7 years.

I’ve put together this helpful guide to give you an idea of what to expect in the way of living expenses and overall comfort when living off the grid in an RV, compared to on-grid RV living.

Recharging the freon in an RV air conditioner should be left to the professionals for a number of reasons. Make sure you use an outlet rated for 30amps to prevent failure but when it comes to repair it’s not really a DIY job.
