During winter time i could fully charge my batteries from solar panels (they covered in snow all the time). Also i don't like to running my van engine for charging from alternator. So i got 3kW pure sine inverter with builtin battery charger and run it with 1kW gas generator.
I finish my vantilation system for toilet and bathroom and it sucks! (in a good way).
Did some air tests to be sure it works. Not yet tested in real life tho.
