true, and some of the components are top notch...3000 watt magnum inverter for one the victron battery monitor for another. I was not able to discern whether Keystone is outsourcing the option or doing it in factory ( i suspect the former ) I don't know anything about the lithium batteries, but you get what you pay for, and there are good batteries with cheap BMS systems on them, and vice versa. Then there is the wiring. I'm not saying the keystone option is not good, but like much of what goes into RVs, the industry has a habit of cheaping out on many things. For 12,500 (the potential fully discounted installed price, you could do a top notch self install (time consuming but not rocket science either) or even hire a reputable installer and get a more moderate but fully adequate install. Plus you can do it in phases, you may not even need a full on solar installation, but the batteries and a small portable genny might be all you need. Just sayin'.
