Tuesday Talk – Working from an Airstream or RV

On Tuesday’s we’d like to answer questions sent to us from viewer’s like you and share some of the details of our Airstream life.

This week we’re talking about what it’s like to work full time from our Airstream. Steve did it for many months before calling it quits from his job and he shares his experiences. The main takeaway is that it is totally do-able and in fact, we encourage moving into your RV before quitting. It gave us stability to figure out what we really wanted while we were still stationary and making money.

Do you work from the road in your RV? Any advice for someone considering it?

Setting Up Our Honda Generator & the First Start

Now that Steve has officially retired he is starting on his list of tasks to get done before we hit the road full time. First up setting up our generator and making sure we know how to work it. As you guys know we are mainly powered by our solar setup but it is always good to have a backup plan for those rainy weeks without much sun. In comes our Honda Generator. Steve was a good sport and shows the entire process in this video.

Installing a Catalytic Heater in our Airstream

Now that we have Solar Power we’re trying to continue decreasing our power usage in any way possible. One great way is using a Catalytic Heater for heating the Airstream instead of the furnace. It takes NO power and a minimal amount of propane to run meaning it saves us lots while providing plenty of warmth on even the coldest days and nights. Check out how Steve and his dad decided to install our catalytic heater.
