I’d be surprised if all three of those don’t have inverters producin 120 and 240 volts.
Yes and CT should also. I don't care for the CT look or usability.

[emoticon] Hi, we had our power out for 3 1/2 days. My Yamaha 2400 portable generator took care of two refrigerators and some lights. Transfer switch on order. Gas fire place works with two "D" cell batteries.

Hi, we had our power out for 3 1/2 days as well. My 3500W Champion portable generator ran 80 hrs non stop to power my 3400sf house as normal. Fridge, 15cf deep freeze, satellite TV, internet, WIFI, propane furnace, water well, lights, etc. The only thing we couldn't do was run the furnace and well pump at the same time.

The only problem I had was driving 50 miles round trip to find gas. As someone else mentioned, if the gas station doesn't have power they aren't pumping gas.

We ran our house on about 3KWh. The Ford truck discussed here should power my house 24/7 for at least 60 days.

I don't make money from fossil fuels and I believe there is a difference between "finding faults" and pointing out shortcomings.
but Al Bore can make money from non fossil fuel sources.

Both of the remaining salmon in the Columbia are glad you have low cost power.

First time my wife saw the CT she laughed and said something like “well that’s freakin ugly”. Two days later she put in a reservation for one. I’m now questioning my good looks.

Just sayin.

If you were using 3KW per day, instead of per hour, your 60 day math would be correct.

Actually it was a Ford 150 Power Boost that was powering a house in Texas.

Correct, and unlike the Cybertruck, you can buy one because it actually exists.

Ha, you are correct. Drawing 3kw/Hour from a 200kwHour source would be 2.5 days. That sounds more reasonable.
Thanks
