Know your needs.
Before you can search for parking, you need to get to know the ins and outs of your tiny house. Your utility needs will dictate the kind of parking spot that will be a good fit for your tiny house. For most tiny dwellers, their homes are a mix of on and off-grid utilities, with RV electrical hook-ups, composting toilets and onboard freshwater tanks that hold enough for several days of use. While some tiny houses are completely on-grid with traditional flush toilets, no holding tanks, and more robust power needs. Important note: any flush toilets will require sewer hook-ups. If you have solar power and a freshwater tank, you may be able to park in more remote areas. Keep in mind; if you are far from a water source, you will need an extensive collection of freshwater hoses, a mobile water tank or have water delivered. The size of your tank will determine how often you need to refill.
Your tiny house power needs will determine what your electrical needs are, like 30 or 50-amp hook-ups. If your power usage is minimal, you might be able to plug into a standard household 15-amp outlet, as our tiny house can. Calculate your total tiny house amp usage by figuring out how much electricity each of your appliances uses. Use a watt-meter to make this process easier. Then add it all up to get the total electrical usage. This calculation will help let you know if 15-amps will sufficiently power your tiny house. If you ever trip a breaker while plugged into to 15, 30 or 50-amp outlet, you are probably pulling too much power. When in doubt, consult an electrician.
