Last year we got into Quartzsite LTVA on September 1st and left on May 15, I think that equals out to 256 Days, of course we have a 100 gallon waste tank and a 55 gallon water barrel on a small trailer to haul to the waste station and water fill. Also 960 watts of solar helps.

wish my rig had capacity to do longer than it does.
Mostly we'd only do it one night in a place and move to a different place.  our longest was 5 nights before finding a CG to plug in...but each night was someplace different while enroute over something like 1700 miles or more.  i found that this exceeded my personal threshold for driving miles and nights not plugged in.  I was beat.

The most in one place without moving is I think two nights

Oh, you poor man! That has to be grueling!

We just did Calgary to Vancouver Washington, to Crater Lake Oregon, and then back again in 13 days. That was tough enough. Ordinarily, we will do at least 10 to 12 days in one spot. Hope you get a bit more of a rest than that the next trip you are out. :-)

A week.  Outhouse where we could dump the Porta-potty and hand pump where where we could get water when needed or refill our water tank.

Limit is more scheduling than equipment.  So many beautiful places to go and so much to see.

We do have a favorite spot on the shore of Lake Superior that we will spend extended time at every few years.  Just can't get away from it.

We've gone 18 days at one stretch being heading to the dump. Our tanks are relatively small with 42 gallons of fresh water, 40 gallon gray tank and 30 gallon black tank. This was pushing it but we routinely go 12-15 days at a time. An Oxygenics shower head helps immensely with water conservation. We also use a dishpan in the kitchen sink and dump all waste water into the black tank to conserve on gray tank space.

Are you sure your black tank is only 30 gallons.  :)

Six weeks for me.  This was on a chunk of private land out in the middle of nowhere so not limited to X days.

No power, electric, septic, or generator - all solar. 150 gallons of fresh water, 120 gallon holding tank.


Amazing JD! My math puts you at 3.5 gallons of water/day. Missy seems to be working out well

You all need to get Terry Brewer involved here.


When he decides they are not moving to a dump station it comes down to wet wipe baths, etc. The 8-10 days Sue will tolerate no hookups is just a good start for the Brewers.

Lol! Yes our black tank is 30 gallons. During that 18 day stretch we were out and about where public facilities were available so that took some pressure off the tank.  ;D

Sometimes Port-a-John companies can be willing to pump your tanks. I think they charged me $65 but that was pennies compared to some rents I've paid.
