Ever wanted to own an Electric Vehicle (EV) but live in a motor coach and didn’t think it was possible. THINK AGAIN! For under $1000 you can build a system into your motor coach that not only powers your rig, but also will Level 2 Charge an EV off the SAME 50 or 30 AMP connection your RV plugs into. All without blowing that 50 AMP breaker! So dream no more…You can do it! You can own a Tesla, or any EV, and live on the road!

Both David & Brenda of OutsideOurBubble and Lehnanne & I here at TurtleHerding live on the road FULL TIME and we both own Tesla Model X’s and very much enjoy owning an EV on the road. With some parts you can buy on-line and some FREE, open source software that I wrote, you too can own an EV and travel with it!

In the first video below, David and I talk about the history of the project and show you the interface in action! Below you will find a link to the open source project, complete with download links and step-by-step setup instructions to make it all possible.

Why give this away for free? Simple…We both fully support Elon Musk’s vision of an EV future, however, up until now it was difficult to do while traveling in an RV.   But that all changed when, let’s just say, creativity stepped in and a solution was created!

So, come on, what are you waiting for? Go order your Tesla, Mustang Mach E, BMW i3 or whatever, and while you are waiting for it to come in, prepare your RV to charge it!

HI, I have been trying to purchase the Split Single Phase Real Time Whole House Energy Meter Kit since you wrote this article but its always on backorder. Can you suggest any alternatives? Thanks

Hi Brian,
Just a quick note that I have now updated the EV4RV Wiki with the full details on installing and configuring the ShellyEM device.

Thanks Michael. I will take a look at it. I am very familiar with shelly as I used quite a few of their devices to automate 12v devices in my rv. Thanks for updating the info. Brian
