The Dry Campers

The Dry Campers

We are Mike, Leanna, Daisey and Lucy. We travel the country and help other RVers to become less dependent on shore power by installing solar and lithium battery systems. We work directly with Battle Born Batteries for the lithium batteries as well as Victron Energy components. Battle Born Batteries has excellent customer service and a phenomenal product that we fully support.

Mike has over 25 years of low-voltage electrical experience and truly enjoys designing and installing off grid systems. He specializes in creating “stealth” installs for RVs (i.e. he will try his hardest to utilize void space the RV manufacturer did not utilize, so that you gain space and do not “see” the components).

We release YouTube videos every Sunday at 5PM CT with a walk-through of our solar installs. Please check those out and follow along as we’d love to follow your travels as well.

If you’re interested, please complete the contact us form and we’ll be in touch ASAP! Also, check out our map to see when we may be in your area, but of course contact us so we can connect and get to scheduling!

Services

Please check out our YouTube channel to see the kind of craftsmanship he puts into his solar and lithium installs.

The way we work is:

  1. You contact us via the contact us page,
  2. We schedule a conference call with Mike to discuss your wants and needs in a system. (He’s NOT a salesman. He designs a system based on your wants and needs. He’s an electrician, so he does the math on approximately what you would need to power your coach.),
  3. Once we have a system design, we send over a proposal. Once we figure out exactly what fits your budget as well as your needs, you’ll sign the proposal, send it back to us, then we’ll work on scheduling a location and time for your install. (Please check out our map on the homepage to determine what our upcoming travels are.),
  4. We work directly with Battle Born and the solar panel company to get Purchase Orders to ensure you get the correct parts. We then send you the vendor invoice, where you pay for the invoice directly with the vendor and ensure that this is done within 2-3 weeks of our arrival to do the install.,
  5. We show up and do the install at an agreed upon location and campground (typically), all while you stay living in your RV as normal. Installs can take anywhere from 4 days to a week or more, depending on the size of the system.
