That's what you are seeing here.
Wifey B: I see this thread with engineer thoughts but read so many going to such effort to avoid them when they don't have a better solution. Perhaps soon we'll be talking about gas and diesel engines in the same way, as crude, yet effective, sources.

I'm not saying exploring options isn't wise. However, I also see many spending a lot of time and money trying to circumvent them and others sacrificing a lot of comfort in trying to do the same.

Hoping the engineers keep at it, but meanwhile I'll just enjoy and be happy to have generators.
