We need electric for everything from the cooktop to the fridge.
My 6 house batteries wouldn’t last and my auto gen will be running all night.
I probably should just post X2 on the ^^^ as more people are boondocking making it harder to find sites. Today there’s lots of info on the net about places so more people are boondocking
The only reason to run the generator at night is if you need AC and in that situation staying at a CG with electric may be a better option.
Yes, my rig (and previous) is “total electric” and we boondock 80% of the time during the summer. My 21 cuft EnergyStar refrigerator draws 1 amp AC or 8 amps DC when running 40% of the time so ONE 100AH battery will run it all night [mod edit]. In the morning I will crank the generator to make coffee and charge the batteries for 45 minutes. In the evening while cooking I’ll run the generator for an hour...I do not use the auto start.
I put too much money into my NoCold before going residential (previous rig and BEST mod ever) [mod edit].
