A gas powered generator to power a house does not make sense either.

Oh, but I can hear you sputter now, "That's only in an emergency!"

Exactly.

OKAY,Thanks all of you posters. I will immediately write Ford and tell them that the experts on RV net have proven beyond any doubt that their electric truck program is just totally not feasible.
I will refer them to this thread and I am sure that they will discontinue this un American immediately.
Thank all of you for saving Ford and its investors from an catastrophic failure and probable bankruptcy! True Americans one and all!

It will work for some folks, but not most folks. The same is true for any truck.

Right now it won't work for anyone since they don't sell them yet.

Save yourself the postage stamp. I'm pretty sure Ford is smart enough to know the average RV'er isn't their targeted market and that most the people that buy a pickup truck don't tow RV's with them.

People with electric vehicles that take road trips don't stop overnight just to charge up. They plan their route according to location of charging stations.

Exactly, or more accurately, their cars plan for them -- and drive for them too as an option when they are fatigued.

Unfortunately charging stations can't give them much more than 3/4 of a tank unless they stay the night.

Time to sell my Ford stocks!

Wait, I already sold it and made some money off it -- but not enough to totally fund my F150 Lightning reservation.[emoticon]
