Re: Towed Generator that We Really Need

Bob, you make a good point. There are a number of items available now in 24 volts, some electronics lighting and wind generators to name some but as to a complete switchover that will be a long time coming if ever. The whole auto industry, RV industry and almost any other commodity using DC power are all geared to 12 volt.
It is feasable to use a hyrid 12v/24v system wiring some things 12 and others 24 off the same battery bank.
