So many places don't allow genset anymore. Or they don't allow after 8pm or not on Tuesday ect. ect. ect.
So this was my solution just so I could run a few 120v things without the genset but I will also include a battery tender so the solar batteries can be topped off when the genset is on or when I'm plugged in

Thanks, none of them are particularly elegant solutions in my case but they are practical and I though I can get back to the cosmetic aspects a bit later

And now that I've rebuilt the Perkins Fuel pump it runs like a charm! Also I have an Onan JC 12kw Gas gen that I rebuilt for funsies sitting in waiting in case the Perkins ever quits on me. And then I can use my little quite Honda for something in between the crazy loud Perkins and the silent solar set up.
