Genset size depends on what you are needing to power. Heater depends on where you will be living in it at and how much insulation/heat leaking windows you have. We are keeping our original bus heat and plumbing a fluid heater inline with a hot circulating pump. As for the wiring we are taking a tip from Fred Hobe (bottom of the first page) and using 12/3 heavy duty extension cords plus the wiring we pulled and saved from the Eagle. We kept a pile of our extension cords from when David was working construction and brought them out with us. We have more than enough to wire the skoolie.
