I would be a little more concerned about a group 24 battery making it through the night.
Just got back from my first outing. Everything worked w/o switching breakers on and off as expected. I was quite pleased.
As to the battery making it, I did really well with it. Had the generator top the battery off till around 9:30 at night. Had the thermostat set to 68 or so (as near as I could tell). I had either 1/2 or 3/4 charge on the battery each morning. The morning I had 3/4 the temps actually got done to around 42 at night. I do have PUGS on my tent ends and Reflectix in the window inserts. Kept things nice and comfy inside w/ no issues. Or condensation (both ends had a little corner opened up, maybe 1.5").
