Doesn't matter who you have do it, you had better know where the person lives that did it as there's absolutely no telling if they have a clue as to what they're doing. I do mine myself.

Amazing! They've changed how the indicators work (maybe for the fun of it?). On our 'ancient' 2010, turning the gas switch on lights it the same as turning the electric switch on. There's no...

Very true. I went with four batteries and 400 watts of solar as we seldom go more than one to three days dry camping. This has worked well as long as we're reasonably careful. Still can run a TV...
