Living in your travel trailer has a lot of perks and aspects to consider. Last month, we covered how to choose the right trailer layout. But, if you’re going to live in your trailer, you’ll also need power, whether from a portable generator or a solar energy system. Here’s how to meet your travel trailer’s power needs.
Invest in a good generator
A good generator can be expensive, but it’s a worthwhile investment. Buy from a dependable brand and look for something lightweight that you can easily transport, perhaps even with wheels. Consider getting a more powerful generator than your RV needs, giving you extra overhead if you ever plan to use tools while charging the RV battery.
Get LED lights
If your travel trailer doesn’t already come with LED lights, consider buying them. High-quality LED lights use significantly less power and last longer, which can save you a lot of money on power generation over the months and years.
Buy portable solar panels
Even if you still use a generator, you can use any number of portable solar panels to supplement your travel trailer’s power needs. In the summer, you may even be able to avoid using a generator altogether and save big on fuel. Solar panels pay for themselves and setting them up is simple, making them a very smart investment.
When done right, living in your travel trailer can be very liberating. Call us at RVs of West Texas in Baird, Texas, to find the perfect travel trailer for your needs.
