    Price comparison between battery types, including Tesla model 'S' batteries, a real game changer...

    A really good solar rig with limited sun using Tesla batteries (done correctly with balancing & proper controllers).
    Keep in mind the Tesla batteries have almost ZERO corrosion issues, and other than charge controllers & balancers they are maintiance free!
    Some folks are getting 12-15 years out of this battery type.

    Thought on the champion dual fuel gen you st Sams? The guy who runs several races I do has one and it is QUIET! Not as much as the small Honda but close. Rating is 68db which is about where our dishwasher is listed

    big enough for our needs. Even if I have to cycle freezers.

    I have a Champion 3400 Dual Fuel and it is quiet, electric start, 30 AMP RV plug, even comes with a battery tender. When it came in the battery cover was cracked, something poked through the box in shipping and rather than mess with a claim through the delivery company I contacted Champion and they sent me a replacement for free.
    I invested in the cover. champioingenny.jpg

    We have ample power but none are quite rated. This might be on the list of to get items.

    Keep the generator maintained so when it is needed you don't have to work on it.
    Keep battery charged.
    Keep fresh fuel in it (not an issue if running on LP or natural gas).

    Size your gen set so itís running at 60% capacity most of the time. They can sustain 70% of a prime power rating indefinitely, above that you get into duty cycle/derating.

    The one I am asking about is pull start, NOT an inverter, and needs a wheel set added. Purpose is to keep freezers running.

    Can power water at farm if needed.

    Only 68dB rated.
