Thanks for your interesting post. However, while these batteries may be attractive to a "First adopter", I suggest they are essentially out of reach for the average RV'er at this time. Maybe the cost will come down as more are produced.

They are talking about house batteries, so however you charge your batteries now won't change.

Besides, even if you are talking about motive batteries, the amount of power produced by coal is in a continuing downward trend pretty much every where. I believe you are American so for your country it is already under 40 percent and dropping. expected to be under 30 in a decade. Its also a lot easier to control pollution from one source than it is from a million tail pipes. Not to mention all the lubrication oils, filters, hoses etc that are done away with on electric vehicles.

I think we are a couple decades away from large vehicles like Motorhomes being powered by anything other than internal combustion engines, but electric commuter vehicles (cars and SUV's) will be main stream within a decade,

Still waiting for the flying car in every garage. Maybe we can leap right into a flying Tesla.
