Episode 75 — Solar, Batteries, and Generators, OH MY!

On this episode of RV Miles, we’re talking all things auxillary power. That’s everything you use when the RV isn’t plugged in: solar, batteries, and generators. We also have tips for transitioning kids to full-time RV life, a great option for exercising at health clubs on the road, and all the latest news — including the latest on the government shutdown and its effect on national parks and federal campgrounds.

 GoSun Solar Cookers

When you’re out camping in the wild, miles from the nearest propane or electrical hookup, every bit of energy and fuel you can save matters. With GoSun Solar Cookers, you can cook full, hot meals without propane. Without electricity. Without wood. GoSun cookers trap the sun’s rays to steam, bake, roast, and boil – even when it’s cloudy, using special reflectors to grab available heat from the sun and trap it into a borosilicate glass tube where your food cooks at up to 550 degrees. And three different models offer the perfect combination of portability and cooking capacity. Visit gosun.co and use the code RVMILES to get 15% off all of GoSun’s Solar Cookers.
