OK, I stand corrected. Jackie, the 'light of my life', the 'Thorn in my side'
, my partner, my helpmate mentioned, "Honey, some of these guys have inverters they depend on to take care of the AC load."
(We were in the generator business for over 30 years and she's not near as green as she's grassy lookin').
OK, maybe I'm and old f--t but as my Dad used to say, "The cow's need milking at 6 in the morning and 6 at night...pay attention there might be a test later".
That means, watch your batteries and if you get in trouble...you are "in control"! You can start your generator (because it has a separate battery) and go on with your life!
I still endorse the KISS principle (besides it keeps SWWNBD off my butt)!
