Best RV Battery for Boondocking (2021)

•, Mike Wendland

Boondocking also called dry camping, is beloved by many RVers. If you don't know, it's camping without hookups to water, electricity, sewer, or cable. 

Jennifer and I prefer boondocking since we feel like we can truly disconnect from the hustle and bustle of life. 

RV boondocking allows you to enjoy nature away from people and be off the grid. But, still be able to enjoy some comforts from home. It provides you with the best of both worlds! 

Of course, if you want to use electricity to power lights and appliances, you will also need an efficient boondocking battery setup. 

Best RV Battery for Boondocking
To determine the best RV battery for boondocking, you will need to assess your particular needs. You will need to know how many amps each of your appliances consume when plugged in. 

Small appliances, like lights, will not drain much power of your battery. But microwaves or coffee pots will use more amp hours. You will also want to account for an air conditioner or heater if you think you will use either of them. 

Once you have set up camp, you will want to switch on a generator while using high amp consuming appliances like the air conditioner. You will also want to switch over your refrigerator to propane.
