Below, the details regarding the All-Electric version of the camper.

14FLEV: Energy Autonomy
Understandably, given some power-hungry appliances, it all sounds like mission impossible. For practical reasons, the manufacturer provides some estimates, so let’s look at one (most optimistic, assuming a sunny summer day and a fully loaded battery).
Total Stored Power: 400 Ah x 12V = 4800 W
Available Power (85% of stored power) = 4080 W
Estimation of Maximum Runtime for selected appliances:


AC Unit
Induction Cooktop
Fireplace (Heat-Md)
Water heater
Lights, water-pump..

Nominal Power [W]


Runtime [hrs]


       Regarding the battery charge: During sunny summer day, the fixed solar panels (2 x 200W nominal) can provide about 2,200W/day while the optional Solar Blanket (300W nominal) additional 1,620W (altogether about 3,800 W/day. The numbers will be drastically lower during the cloudy days and wintertime (shorter days).

Practical Notes:

  • Induction Cooktop and Water Heater despite their high nominal power will not be a major problem, because typically, they are used for a relatively short time (a few tens of minutes per day). Cooktop (about 750W for 30 minutes of operation), Water Heater (about 800W for 30 minutes of operation)
  • The Microwave (if available), typically runs for just a few minutes, so it should not have big impact on the battery (275W during 15 minutes of operation).
  • The Refrigerator and Lights use relatively little power, however, they run much longer. While the refrigerator operates 24/7, it will be safe to assume that the compressor runs no more than 30% of the time (about 600 W/day), while lights no more than a few hours (so about 120W/day). Add to that the power consumption of continuously running (24/7) Monitoring and Control Systems.
  • Fireplace in “No-heating mode” thanks to its All-LEDs technology should have no major impact on batteries. However, clearly, the 14FLEV definitely does not generate enough power to comfortably operate the Fireplace for the purpose of heating and the AC for cooling.


  • In an “Out-of-grid” environment, on warm sunny days you should be able to enjoy your daily activities and habits, provided you pay attention to energy use;
  • On the campground w/shore connection, you may not be able to save $, because in most cases you are charged a “flat rate” regardless of how much energy you will use (if the “metered” pricing is available, go for it!).

Water Autonomy
       So far, the 14FL travel Trailer seems to exceed expectations for this class of campers. But nothing is perfect, and here is its weak spot.
“Out-of-grid” environment also means that suddenly the “water valve” (so convenient on campgrounds) is suddenly closed. The 14FL (in standard and EV versions) comes with 10 gallons freshwater tank, 30 gallons greywater tank, and 5 gallons of blackwater tank. While the greywater tank has decent capacity, the fresh and black water tanks are disappointing.

  • The water-flushed toilet not only consumes a lot of fresh water but also quickly fills the blackwater tank. Practically, the blackwater tank with its 5 gallons capacity will be filled in 1 to maximum 2 days (assuming 2-to-3 users). While on the campground you will mostly use the public toilets and showers, “off the road” you will not have such luxury. The answer seems to be simple: Composting Toilet. Not only that it will not drain your freshwater tank, but its cassette typically “lasts” for 2 to 3 weeks. And in most cases (depending on the local laws), the resulting compost can be buried in the soil!
  • This approach (hopefully adopted by Travel Lite) creates the possibility to increase by 5 gallons the capacity of the freshwater tank without increasing the trailer’s dry weight (although it will decrease the cargo capacity by 42 lbs).

Rove-Lite 14FL: Wheels

Tuson Sway Control (TSC) is an intelligent electronic sway control system. By continuously monitoring the trailer’s movement, the system can rapidly detect wobbling (sways), and counteract them by independently applying braking force to either the left or the right wheel (as needed). The TSC is wired directly into the trailer braking system. What may be interesting for nature enthusiasts – the TSC system can improve trailer’s stability even in off-road conditions.
