Have a 14 adventurer gasser. Many same "house" features as the tour. Have lp for furnace and stovetop. Also has inverter for res fridge and has heat pumps. Four battery bank and 2KW inverter. Only needed the LP when in
Northern Nevada in March when temp went below 36. I could totally see not having lp system on board if you could heat bedroom electrically in colder weather. Heat pumps will freeze up below around 36. How does an all electric handle this? Finding easy LPG can be hard.

The diesel fueled boiler, used for both heat and hot water, is extremely efficient. When it gets below freezing portable electric heaters struggle to keep the living area comfortable but the Aqua/Hydro hot systems work extremely well and are almost silent, compared to either the heat pumps or LP fired furnaces.
