Default 2015 Roadtrek RS E-Trek - Avoid it? or Consider it?

It's a very simple question and would love some Response ..

I've seen some good posts about the E-Trek but Mostly Bad Posts. I think this
is because most come to forums to figure out and/or complain about problems. Right?

But I'm looking at a E-Trek, 2nd Owner, with low miles, 23k.
It's a RS E-trek w/8 AGM Batteries and a 5000w Inverter.

The batteries were replaced at 8k by the dealer and sold the unit to the 2nd Owner. He's put 15k on it and is moving on from class B's. He's had Zero problems with the rig.

I can't find anything wrong with it.

So I'm going to put it to a test tomorrow. Boil some water on the induction, Crank up the convection oven to 425. Run the lights, the fridge and even thinking of running a 1500 watt space heater.

So, 9600 Watt Hours in the batteries should net about an hour running the inverter at 4000 watts ... right? Maybe a little more? Will the inverter shut off at low (half) battery? Will it Beep a Warning? I'll run through the Docs while I'm Sweating away in the RV.

Afterwards, what's the best way to test the charge? On the 24v Generator or with Shore Power?

Any other quirky things to check out in a 2015 RT RSEM E-TREK?

Love the Webasto Heater ... the unit is winterized so I can't test the water system... any issues with Webasto Water Heater?

Thx in Advance --- New to the Forum !!

A simple response to your initial simple question (from the owner of a 2013 E-Trek that has served me well) - yes, Id consider it. Make sure it has a battery equalizer installed, which is highly likely if the owner has had zero problems. The Webasto diesel-fueled heat/hot water system has been very reliable. Id be skittish about buying without testing the plumbing under pressure and the Webasto water-heating functions. Good luck.
