Unless you are going to forgo AC, microwave, and any other heavy draw 120-volt appliances, you will need a battery bank and a good size inverter along with running your truck engine in order to keep your batteries charged.

Most often when folks talk about “all-electric”, what they really mean is substituting something else that burns hydrocarbons (gasoline or diesel) to take the place of propane. The reason propane has endured is it is simple, relatively inexpensive, and doesn’t require running an engine except when it comes time to get the tank refilled.

A generator provides a simple way to recharge batteries even when the sun takes a day off. 🙂
