    The electrolyte replacement that I eventually will have to do, is not going to be fun, 40 cells, 80lb each, drain & refill

        Now that LFP is around. I'd chose to replace the L-16's I had. with a dual bank of golf cart batteries, and see what LFP is doing in 2-3 years.
        And I'd have to get an auto-start genset, now that I'm tired of 2 trips a day to hand crank the listeroid up (starts way better than the subaru genset)
