13 Ways to Save Electricity in Your RV

World events have sent energy prices soaring to dizzying new heights, but you won’t have to worry about the cost of running your generator if you take a few tips from the experts at East Toho Resort and Marina about ways to save electricity in your RV.

Save Electricity in Your RV

  • Replace fluorescent and incandescent lights with LED lights.
  • Use a propane refrigerator.
  • Cook with charcoal, propane, and wood.
  • Fully charge all batteries before leaving on trip.
  • Turn off any electrical devices as soon as you’re done using them.
  • Use a 100-watt solar panel (portable or roof installed) for minimal battery maintenance.
  • Use a Kindle type device to read at night.
  • Use residual heat when it’s available – For instance, if you use an electric coffee pot to make coffee, lean a water container against the coffee pot to warm water for oatmeal.
  • Carry sufficient warm and cool clothing to reduce heater and air conditioner run times.
  • An idling generator that is not being used still burns fuel. Turn generators off when not needed.
  • Unplug batter chargers when not in use if they are warm. Many chargers draw energy even when they are not charging anything.
  • Change vent filters when dirty so fans need less power to turn them.
  • Plug TVs, DVD players, radios, and computers into power strips and turn off the strip at night, because many devices continue to draw electricity even when not in use.
