We're all close I have a Trace SW4024 -- 4kW with 4 batteries -- and a Honda EX4000 converted to propane in my back shed. Also auto starts when battery depleted close to 50%. This is what makes living in the DR easy. One more thing is a good water solution. I have a ~3,200 gallons cistern with 750 gallons of rooftop tinacos (500 + 250) with a Myers 3/4 horse shallow well pump. Life in DR is a-ok and sometime great.We're close. Mine is a 2.6 with 4.
Having the generator is icing on the cake.
If the batteries get a little low the generator kicks in and runs the entire house while the batteries recharge.
