Are Generators or Additional Power Cords Needed for Power in an RV?

Having a reliable source of power while staying in an RV as a temporary housing solution will definitely be important for your clients.

If the site where you need a temporary housing RV rental does not have a power source established by the local electricity provider, what should you do to get electricity to the RV?

Use a Generator

Using a generator is one of the most popular ways to power an RV at sites where electricity has not been established. This is especially useful for work and disaster sites.

Does RV Housing Connect the Rental Unit to the Client’s Electrical Service Upon Delivery?

If you’re considering using RVs for your company’s temporary housing needs, you probably have a lot of questions. You want to be 100% sure that RVs will be the most comfortable and safest options for your clients, so you’ll likely want to anticipate many of the questions they may present.

One of the most common questions we get asked is about whether or not we connect the RV to the client’s electrical service when it is delivered. Having reliable electricity in the RV during the temporary housing period is crucial for the client’s comfort, safety, and hygiene.
