So far I like the all electric. We have only had this rig for about 3 months and only boondocked once. In my old Motorhome, I still had to run the gen everyday to make sure the batteries were charged up(did not have solar). We are going to boondock for 4 days next week, so I will know more then. We like cooking outside as much as possible, so I use my propane Coleman stove set up outside.
I hated the propane fridge, love the residential.
I hated putting propane in Motorhome.
I hated messing with batteries, now AGMs with no maintenance.
We will be full timing in 20 months, so I think the all electric will work great for us.

Like others have said, it all depends on how you want to camp.

We like our all electric coach. We tested for a couple of days to see what our capabilities would be. Just as a point of reference, we started with 12.8 volts on the house batteries at night. Heat was running, moderate light use, TV and Sattelite dish for a couple of hours. In the morning our battery bank showed 12.4 volts. By the evening it was 12.0. I believe LED's make all the difference as well as super efficient residential appliances. I'm happy

We run our genny less with our all electric coach, then with our old 03 Fleetwood.

The Fleetwood 4 batts had trouble making it through the night if both furnaces were running. It's inverter wouldn't run the microwave, so every time we wanted to heat something up we had to run the genny.

With our Newmar and 8 house, Oasis heat and a bigger inverter I finally had to exercise the genny just to run it.

We only boondock while moving. If just boondocking, I'd run the genny for a couple hours a day.
