If you watch your battery load you don't need a generator unless you desire air conditioning. An overnight stay suggests coffee made with the gas stove,prudent use of lighting, and any 12VDC accessories. Add up the amperage draw of each light, your DC TV, and compare against the rated amperage of your batteries. You shouldn't draw them down more than 60% before recharging.
BTW, overnighting at WalMart or any other free parking lot is not boondocking, or dry camping. It is overnighting, whether it be WalMart, Flying J, Love's.

If you're just overnighting I think you would be hard-pressed to run down two 6v batts in just one nite.

When we camp without hookups I usually top off the batteries (two 6v) every other day.

Thanks for the reply re; overnighting
Is it true that if you run your truck for 1/2 hoour that that willl top off the Batteries..And is it much better to get 2 6 volts rather than 2 12 volts.
I reallly appreiciate all of the info Looking forward to RV ing in 2006.
again RV Land of Brandon (FL) is a great dealer if you are loking for a Sunnybrook
