First I want to go over a few key points on why I want to do this monthly RV cost review.
- I have not found any Full-Time RV living cost break downs
- Keep me accountable
- Track my true RV costs

RV Lifestyle Thoughts
January was a fun month living in the RV! We did a RV adventure that I wrote a seperate post so I won’t add too much here about it.
I also bought a new toy that I will be using for future adventures, pictures and videos!
The list below is some work projects that I put on last month’s breakdown. I wanted to slowly work on these and make our solar a little cleaner looking. I actually did some of these in January.
- Clean up wires in cargo
- Maybe run wires from the roof through the ceiling
Clean up roof wires Install new 200-watt panel
Right now this week I started to clean up the wires in the cargo bay. I ordered all the materials to run the wires through the roof. It’s just a little nerve-racking cutting into your roof! I’m happy so far with the progress I have made with these projects. I rather go slow and make sure it’s right and cosmetically pleasing for the most part vs rushing it again.
In case you missed it here is last month’s breakdown. Keep on the journey and path!
