Living in Your Car to Save Money or Out of Necessity

M.D. Creekmore

I've been interested in self-reliance topics for over 25 years. I’m the author of four books that you can find here. Over the years, I’ve learned a lot about prepping, homesteading, and self-reliance topics through first-hand experience and now I want to share what I’ve learned with you.

    Good plan for mobile emergency sheltering could even help keep a working person near their source of employment. Suggestion for Key items to keep in your car #4 inverter: It will pay you back over time to purchase the most efficient inverter you can afford when planning a move into a vehicle. There are high conversion losses with cheap inverters. DO NOT oversize the inverter beyond what the vehicle sockets will support or you may need to consider hard wiring the inverter into the electrical system. If at all possible, install a small deep-cycle battery in a vacant spot and a battery isolator setup. Starting barriers are not made for long slow drawdowns. Doing so will drastically shorten the starting batteries life, possibly causing sulfation if left in a state of discharge for periods of time. With the aforementioned deep-cycle setup, you use your “house battery” to power small appliances, charge devises etc. You charge the “house battery” when the engine is running but reserve the starting battery for it’s intended purpose. You are much less likely to become stranded. We live in a connected world and I for one would want to be able to search for jobs and reply to inquiries about my skills ASAP. Waiting for the library to open tomorrow could well be too late, causing you to miss out on a great opportunity.
