Cool info, thanks, I would be all over an automatic, I can shift just fine, but on something this size seems like a hassle. Maybe a silly question, but why not have a diesel generator? You could use the same fuel tank as the engine? Solar is the shit, and the new style batteries are amazing, expensive, but amazing. Convert to led lights and a modern 'fridge and you can be pretty self sufficient. Saw a rig with a little wind turbine that was rad af! Love the exhaust note, enjoy and keep this thread posted, like this sort of thing. Be safe, and have fun!
