Off-Grid Camping with Rex & Sons RVs: Solar Power and Lithium Batteries

Introduction

Off-grid camping has become increasingly popular among RV enthusiasts. Whether you’re exploring remote wilderness areas or simply want to disconnect from traditional campgrounds, having reliable power sources is essential. Rex & Sons RVs, a family-owned and operated dealership located in Wilmington, NC since 1997, specializes in new and used Class A, B, and C Motorhomes, lite Travel Trailers, and Ultra lite Travel Trailers1. Let’s dive into what makes Rex & Sons RVs ideal for off-grid adventures.

Solar Upgrades in Rex & Sons RVs

1. Additional Solar Panels

Many Rex & Sons RVs now come equipped with solar panels as a standard feature. For instance, the Winnebago EKKO boasts three solar panels already installed and ready to power your off-grid adventures. Additionally, there’s often roof space intentionally left available for adding more panels if desired. Solar power offers a clean, quiet alternative to generators, especially when boondocking, as generators require fuel to operate.

2. Lithium Ion Batteries

Rex & Sons RVs’ lithium-based Pure3 Advanced Energy Management System (available in models like the Travato 59GL or 59KL and the Boldt) provides over 9,000 usable watt-hours of power. These lithium batteries are lightweight, efficient, and offer extended energy independence. With lithium-ion technology, you can camp longer without worrying about battery depletion.

3. High-Quality Inverter

An inverter converts stored battery power (DC) into usable household power (AC). Rex & Sons RVs feature high-quality inverters capable of handling more wattage. This is crucial for boondockers who want to power multiple appliances simultaneously. Remember to manage your power usage based on the specific requirements of your appliances.

4. Simplified Usage

Rex & Sons RVs’ solar setups come with user-friendly control panels, controllers, and even remote monitoring options. The Pure3 Advanced Energy Management System, for example, allows you to monitor your system via the myVolta app. Check estimated running time, power pack temperature, charging status, and power usage—all conveniently from your phone. The Winnebago EKKO and Micro Minnie FLX also feature Lithionics batteries with a Bluetooth monitoring app.

Rex & Sons RVs Revel: A Remarkable Off-Grid Option

The 2025 Winnebago Revel 44E, available at Rex & Sons RVs, stands out for its off-grid capabilities:

  • Winnebago Power MAX System: Equipped with an 8.4kWh Lithionics lithium-ion battery, dual alternator charging capability, Bluetooth control, and pack heating system.
  • Winnebago x EcoFlow Power Hub Pro: A 5-in-1 power management controller with a touchscreen interface and 220 watts of solar power.
  • Stay Off-Grid for Up to 7 Days: With these features, you can enjoy extended off-grid adventures without compromising comfort.

Conclusion

Rex & Sons RVs continues to innovate, making it easier for RVers to camp longer without hookups. Whether you choose the EKKO, Revel, or another model, Rex & Sons RVs’ commitment to off-grid power ensures that your adventures are not limited by traditional campground boundaries.
