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.
