Thanks for the info. Having not been involved in Rv'ing in 25 years, we tried remembering what we would do on a typical boondocking evening after returning from supper while traveling.
We were very frugal in our actions, and wrote everything down. Entered the coach at 7PM, used four lights for four hours, watched the front TV for two hours, the water pump was on all night long, turned on the furnace at midnight (internal temps had dropped to 50 degrees) set it to 65 degrees.
The next morning the house battery was at 12.5. I used it to start the generator. It started well.
I believe the house battery to be a Harris 85 AH battery.
I'm thinking 3 AMG 100AH batteries at 65lbs each would serve us well. For us boondocking is an over-night thing. Two days in a row at the most.
Admittedly the constant (no hassle, no fuss) quite charging of the solar panels are a very attractive thing. Thanks for the info.....
