Everything you always wanted to know about...

First, define: RV boondocking is stopping in a spot, be it National park, BLM (Bureau of Land Management), or Walmart, that has no facilities such as water, electric or sewer or any combination thereof.
Why boondock?  Convenience is one reason. You are traveling to a destination and it is getting late. You do not want to unhitch or to hunt for a campground. Cost is another reason...boondocking is almost always free and always is cheaper than any other camping situation. Solitude and beautiful scenery...except at Walmart😊.
As full time travelers, we are always on the lookout for ways to cut costs, but not sacrifice comfort. We love boondocking, and are learning lots of ways to camp this way in total comfort! It is do able.
What a view!
We have added a new battery to our MiniPearl an Interstate AGM and what a difference that has made. We also bought a 90 watt solar panel and   with the new battery we are able to use all the equipment on the camper. Our fridge stays running, we can turn on and use the water pump, we use an inverter to charge our computers, cell phones and hot spot for internet...we have not lost any convenience except the oven and microwave...oh, no a/c, but our daytime highs are a lovely 70 and 40s at night, so, we are loving it.
Tally ho,
