Wife and I are thinking about spending some time in Arizona this winter and Quartzite is a place we would like to see during the big show in Jan. So my question is, has anyone here spent time in Quartzite boondocking?

My plan is to spend about 1 week at one of the full hook-ups parks in town and then a couple of days in the desert.Since we have never done this type of camping, I was wondering what kind of mods I should try to get done on my toy hauler. Plan right now is to change out my battery for 2 GC2 deep cycles. My generator will arrive Wednesday(hopefully) so I am pretty certain that should help with any A/C needs and/or a little tv watching. Normally I would install a inverter but since we are not sure this is some thing we would enjoy that will be put off to later.

I am currently planning my route and stops so there is no real hurry but I would like to get a start on any mods that may be deemed needed or useful.

Any and all help is greatly appreciated. TIA

I did Quartzsite for the first time this past January with a group (Newmar Kountry Klub). Just about every group/membership does a trip there I believe. I like to do things with groups for the first time to get the lay of the land then I can go back solo or in my own group in the future. Boondocking in Quartzsite is super simple and there are plenty of YouTube videos on it as well. Get familiar with the BLM web site for info needed while there. I have 1800W of Solar but the sun angle is so low that time of the year the solar is not optimal, at least in my time there with 10 panels tilted. Generator is your friend and most likely limited need for it, just to keep batteries topped off. It's very peaceful, great views, and a great opportunity for socializing if you like group settings. Highly recommend it. There are also campgrounds that you can book but far in advance so don't hesitate should you want something more traditional with hookups. I think there are dump locations as well but I didn't need it for my length of stay.
