I have to agree, if you dont need air conditioning AC power is not neccessary, or even desirable. Gas (propane) for cooking, engine for hot water, everything else can be dc. As an aside, even the aircon could be configured to run off the engine (s). The 3.8 chevy engine comes with the neccessary brackets in automotive form. IIRC it uses a Sanden compressor. All of the neccessary items can be sources easily and cheaply at about any automotive recycling center (junk yard). One major benifit being the newer serpentine belt arrangement. The biggest problem with this is that you need to run a big engine to do it. Not so great at anchor, and inefficient to boot unless your cruising.
