New RVer turns his fifth wheel into an RVer’s technology dream

In this 10-minute video, a former corporate executive explains how he quit his job to live and travel full-time in a 43-foot, six-slide Jayco fifth wheel trailer. But he didn’t just buy the rig and move in. No, he outfitted it into what he calls “an RVer’s technology dream.”

He outfitted it with 2,880 watts of solar power, 600 amps of lithium batteries, two inverters, plus internet and other technology that would allow him to live wherever he wished, feel safe, and work on his new business producing tech-training videos on YouTube.

He discusses the only system for getting online that works for him. It involves some very creative ways to get reliable cell phone internet connectivity. It’s far beyond what most RVers would ever even think of.

In the video, he shares his top six high-tech solutions for working on the road and doing it comfortably. In his case, he can sometimes live in one place for weeks at a time without hooking up to utilities.

This RVer is far more technology savvy that most of us. You’ll marvel at his creativity in turning his RV into what truly is an “RVer’s technology dream.”

Well done. Thank you for the great information, professional editing and posting! Really well thought out solutions. You hit on one subject I am still attempting to resolve, a complete security system for the RV as we travel. The part I keep getting stuck on is the DVR and Notification requirements, but without requiring an internet connection. I am at the point that I don’t think there is a way to satisfy this without having the added cost of an “always connected” internet service…

I use the FMCA wifi that is $50/mo for unlimited, and I mean truly unlimited, service. It has worked everywhere except where nothing works. Maybe a cell booster would help in those situations. I recently got the 5g device that lets me see how much I have used and the last two months I was on the road I used over 900gbs each month. The device sets to 1000gbs but can be reset in the middle of the month if you need more. I am still trying to get my blink system to connect to it but since I am home and it is in the shop I’m not too worried about it right now.

What is the input voltage to your inverter? What is the solar voltage into the controllers?

always 12vdc, it’s the amps that matter.

Ok. I would think you’d be at higher voltage with all that power. 12v = big, unwieldy wire.
