Yep, what he said. Set up for 12V lighting, even when the gennie is running. That way, you can have battery-powered lights after you shut down the noisemaker used for earlier [more power-hungry] activities.Build it like a RV.
You can certainly set up an inverter to provide 120V from battery power, but I've never found that to be necessary in over 25 years of such camping. If you just gotta watch smut flics after ther gennie's off, just hit a truck stop and pick up a 12V TV and VCR. :thumbsup:
