    I have 6 solar panels, a 24 battery 24v battery bank, 3600 watt inverter/charger and 8Kw Isuzu diesel generator that auto starts/stops when needed, purchased a "service truck" air compressor that is engine driven, that took care of my high demand air needs. Propane appliances, direct vent oil boiler for heat/hot water all has been working well for many years.

    Look forward to seeing the M715 project pictures.
