This is why generalizations are not good.
I do have large solar array and large amount of lithium.
The way the Bounder is wired makes this thing pretty hard and complicated. The EMS complicates it further.
Basically means I would need to put a new inverter before the panel, redo the EMS, move the batts to where the new inverter would be near the existing transfer switch and on and on and one. The inverter would need to handle both legs of the 50 amp setup. Easily a couple thousand dollars. Most Fleetwood products are wired this way and would require this sort of modifications from my experience.
Much easier to run the genset when AC is needed. And quite a bit less high level wear and tear on the alternator and lithium batts. At 5+ years my batts are still providing over the rated amp hours. I live in my rv full time also and boondock without hookups.
