you can always buy the wireless autostart for ~$500-$600 and add it in yourself.
on charging using the stock magnum mm1212 inverter with it's 70 amp charger, you would need 440ah of charging, so that's about 6.5 hrs theoretical.
however, you aren't supposed to run your deep cycle cells down past 50%, so 220ah worth of charging with 70 amps would take a little over 3 hours... theoretically...
So... if you swapped out the inverter with one having a higher charging rate you could lower the time appreciably. What would be the maximum charge rate without making the batteries fail prematurely?? I know that very fast charging is not good for them.
I'm trying to get a handle of how often (and for how long) I'd need to run my genset when boondocking. My 4 door dometic fridge has fans that run almost continuously. I have no idea of how much those fans draw.
A BLM campground I'm planning to visit in June only allows gensets to run at certain times of the day, and I think there's also a limit on how long you can run them.
Finally, anyone have any idea of how many hours (roughly..... I mean hundreds of hours, thousands, what??) one of these gensets will run between overhauls.... or be in need of complete replacement??
P.S. Just been looking for a replacement oil filter for the genset..... Finding the correct one is a pain.... The owners manual doesn't appear to have it listed; what's up with that??
