One thing I can say is that just about everything I have seen is you have to adapt your electrical usage and can not just act like you have grid power 24/7. When you set out to be your own utility company it involves a great deal of learning what you can do and how you can maximize what you have. You need to understand base loading and peak demands. This might mean that if you are running the vacuum cleaner you can not run the dishwasher at the same time.
My gut agrees with you. If that's the case, we're not interested in going that rout.
