    We actually put them away at home, too. My son’s kindergarten teacher noticed a night and day difference. It’s kinda been a miracle.

    As with most things, moderation is the key.

    I totally agree. I definitely don’t advocate totally screen free. It just happened to work for our family. Now if we could get the parents more screen free.... Like you said, moderation.

    Exactly. Letting someone spend an hour a day playing computer games isn't going to hurt. Having someone do nothing but play computer games the entire trip is annoying. Having a teen text photos of the campground and lakes, etc., to her friends back home is fine. Having a teen continuously texting friends with "I hate this!" and being a whiny brat to the people he's camping with is not acceptable.

    Awesome! Congrats on camping off grid. Most of our camping is at unserviced sites. In a Rockwood Premier 2514G pup. I have 2 24group batteries and a 50W solar panel. 500W inverter. 2 propane tanks. And a 20 gallon fresh water tank. We can go for a couple weeks or longer. We love getting away from the hustle and bustle of the big RVs. 20190825_203954.jpg

    I wrote up an article titled "A Guide to Off-grid Camping" with an A-frame trailer. The primary issue of serious concern relates to having the needed battery power for the basic camping needs like the water pump, lighting, exterior refrigerator fan, etc. For anybody interesting in my findings (that should relate to most trailers and RVs) here is where the article is posted:
