RT39 Roadtreking RV Podcast: Boondocking 101

| Updated Jun 10, 2015

In this episode we talk about what you need to know about boondocking in your RV.


Live from the “Roadtreking Montana Boondocking in the Beartooth Mountains Photo Safari,” we discuss the ins and outs of RV boondocking.
We interview RT Campskunk, the Zenmaster of RV boondocking, who tells us the lessons he's learned from six months of fluttering in a small Class B motorhome, most of it off the grid in wilderness areas. Among other things, he talks about:

  • Black and grey water management
  • Battery conservation
  • Camping in the wilderness
  • Wildlife precautions
  • How important it is to keep a clean campsite


Answering a listener question, Mike and Campskunk talk about their experience of test piloting a revolutionary power system for RVs that utilizes lithium batteries.
Mike also interviews a recently retired couple who sold their house one day and the next, took off on what will be a multiyear full-time RV lifestyle.
And in the Bucket List destination of the week, Mike is joined by award winning photographer Merv Coleman to discuss the amazing natural beauty and RV friendly community of Red Lodge, Montana
