X2 on the books, Calder especially. Keep in mind that 12 volt DC used for AC loads (inverter) is not terribly efficient, cabling is large and loads are large. Connections can become a source of problems. 24 volt would be better but usually doesnt coinside with whats there. 48 volt would be ok, alternators are available as are inverters. Amperage would be much less on the DC side. Inverters are more efficient at 48 volts. You would need to step it down for 12 volt loads. Easily doable.
