Not a few got their units this week.

It is advertised to be able to be a back up power source to a house in case of black out. It goes without saying, therefore, that you don't need a generator nor shore power in a campsite.

Had inquiries on whether there is already truck campers customized for F150 Lightning where electric connections are in the cab and supply to the camper had to be specifically designed or hard wired.

For RVs, seems no problem with an adaptor.

Not sure, not sure... until true-to=life experience and reviews comes out from campers.

But I’m not sure I would want to use my F150 battery for camper power at least until charging stations are more numerous.

And when you hook up a trailer the range probably falls flat on it's face.

Short tests by the press, comparable to ICE with trailer at 40 to 50% reduction in range.

The difference is that unlike iCE and their drivers (lol) truck are smart and will calibrate range based on route and driving habits and point to remaining charge into destination or charging station if insufficient,

Don’t worry the first year is already sold.
Can’t buy one no matter what the functionality is for this model year.

Your perception (dream) of what you’re talking about is not indicative of the top 2% IQ you claim to have.
That is all.
