Sounds like quite a plan.

What TPMS did you find for $279?

The third and maybe the most difficult task will be calculating sq.footage in the battery compartment or rather configuring LFP 12v batteries to find the maximum I can fit since ttthey're especially stackable. I'm not just looking to power the appliances. I want to power a couple of electric motors and make a giant hybrid. Predominantly solar powered.

The sensors sre flow thru so I cam cement them on so they don't get lost or stolen. Plus they come with nice sized monitor that gives tire temp nd position as well. And it's U.S. made.

The owner says it's got new tires and brakes but needs a generator. I've been looking at the 4000watt generator by Champion for under $500. Maybe I could get some feedback.
