I'm so glad I found this forum!
My family and I just decided we are moving off the grid. We have forty acres in northern Arizona, at this time we have a rather small system consisting of four deep cells, one small panel and a propane generator. It's worked fine for the past 12 years! But that was as a vacation home, staying no more than a few weeks at a time. However, we will be moving there full time in the very near future. Can anyone help with a few suggestion as to what we need to live (comfortably) full time. Power requirements would be an evaporative cooler (in the summer, 1/8 hp motor and 15gph pump), washer and dryer(servicing three people), Sat. DVR, and TV (4hrs a day active DVR would be a phantom load) and a lap top (4 hr a day), this should be worst case power usage, and no they won't be all running at the same time.:D
