RVs are a bit different than boats. RVs often use propane for refrigeration. Boats do not. I much prefer cooking with gas (natural or propane) to electric. It's going to take a mighty big bank of batteries to roast a turkey.


LOL, have you really roasted a turkey in a boat ? I used to say this too!!

A company called Roadtrek has a system called Voltstart that works the way I described. They were just bought by the largest RV manufacturer in Europe.

The big problem is the engine on a boat isnít the same quiet operator as an automobile engine.
