Food Preparation Off Grid

Food Preparation Off Grid
As I discussed in an early post, we have a lot of technology to power. Those devices and electrical demands are all for ways to make money, entertain ourselves, and communicate with the outside world. The topic of this entry though is going to be all about food preparation. How to store food, how to make food, how to cook...

A Plan for Going Off Grid

A Plan for Going Off Grid
We have a rather large roof on our 1988 Tiffin Allegro. The RV is 33 feet long with a solid aluminum roof, much of it free of anything. If we want to put solar panels on it, I'm sure there is a way, though it may require some work to make it all happen. I've read a lot of information...

Henry Stop Leak Silicone Tropicool Sealant Review

Henry Stop Leak Silicone Tropicool Sealant Review
I received some products from Henry Company for review. While I have a lot to work with, I started with the smallest project first and will be doing more in the coming weeks.

Converting the RV to Off Grid Life

Converting the RV to Off Grid Life
Since we live in our RV and want to establish ourselves on our own land somewhere, it makes sense to take the RV with us and live in it while we build our structure. At the moment, we cannot really run completely separate from shore power as we would have to run the generator a lot to keep our batteries...

Getting Fresh Water Off Grid

Getting Fresh Water Off Grid
To live off grid in a house we build ourselves, there are many things we need. We have some items that can be used and adapted, but there are still a lot of things we need to get and prepare for this next phase of our lives. We want things to be stable, comfortable enough, self sufficient, independent, and reliant...

Raspberry Pi Server Box

Raspberry Pi Server Box
I'll admit it, I love working with the Raspberry Pi. It's small, cheap, simple to work with, and I can do plenty of different tasks with them. They were designed for educational uses, but with the hobby makers taking over, it has exploded with different uses. We already have one setup as our Plex server and one with RetroPie, but...

Winegard ConnecT 2.0 Review and Installation
I received a Winegard ConnecT 2.0 4G2 (WF2-435) 4G LTE and Wi-Fi Extender for RVs for review. This device is simple to install, easy to setup, and works reliably as much as we've used it.

Smart Home on Wheels: adding technology to aging motorhomes

Smart Home on Wheels: adding technology to aging motorhomes
Here at Bubba On The Road, we love gadgets. We love technology, we love having the internet always accessible. We are approaching 40, so both of us grew up in a time when computers were just starting to become used in homes, video game consoles were 8-bit, and the internet at home was unheard of. As we grew up and...
