What all could a setup like this run? I know he is talking about deer camp. What do yall think. A small house in an emergency ,maybe six lights, two fans or two small heaters, a hot plate, small radio? What do yall think?
It regularly runs ceiling fans in 3-4 rooms, lights, plug in chargers for radios, cell phones, etc. It used to run a TV/VCR and small fridge but the energy hog that used all that left the club a few years back so these things rarely ever get run. The upside is that since the energy hog left, their has only been one time that the batteries were run down. :thumb:
It is in a small house, not a shed or anything.
You NEVER want to use electric to heat, be it water or air. That's a MAJOR draw on an AE system. The house there has a wood stove for heat in the winter and in the summer the windows and ceiling fans suffice for cooling.
It's "usually" just used for 2-3 days at a go, but it's been used for a week at a time. During those periods the system needed a little more input- via the generator.
