Re: I'm battery baffled
There are some folks with A/C units out there that are running with the 2000. I assume the draw is too much for the one on the Escape? I don't plan to get A/C yet, just have it ready for it should I ever decide to spend a bunch of time in hot climates.
If you are just using a gen set for charging the battery, and running a couple lights or the computer, the 1000 would be just fine. I am dealing with this contemplation too. Anything larger, even the Yamaha 2400, starts to become to big of a physical size to carry around. I have the Yamaha EF300iSEB, which is a great unit, by there is no way I am taking it on the road with me.
I am also considering a solar charging system. I would likely go with one that is portable. I saw where someone built a simple frame where 2 decent sized panels folded together. I really don't want to permanently mount solar panels.
