Tesla battery

Not quite ready for us boondockers but hold on for it will be here soon. Sit by the lake for a month and only run generator after 2 days of rain for our battery covers us for anything all night until the solar kicks in. Would that be sweet?

The Teslas will cost less than current LFP systems although it should be noted that the cost of current systems is going down.

As posted before, we have effectively 9.6 kW-hrs or about 7.5 kW-hrs usable at 20% SOC. We have lasted six days in Olympic Rain Forest and about the same in heavy foliage in Cave Creek, AZ and were only down to 50% SOC. We changed energy management and turned off the inverter when not in use since it is has a parasitic draw of 100 W. We still used the micro-wave and watched BBC Mystery on DVD for 90 minutes most nights. So you could sit by the lake and never turn on the generator.
