Love it, but it's a little hard to manage, I've been working on a rebuild that's going to be a lot easier to manage:

Keen to reduce the width, add handles, plus make a slide out tray for the batteries to make them easier to remove. I have a Philips 12V 1080p screen that I got from work that I want to integrate into the lid somehow too.

Most of this will be reusing parts from the first one, one of the other issues I had with "gen 1" was that a lot of things were hanging out of the sides so when we loaded it into the ute, a couple of things broke. Recess all the things!

So this means that I really won't have any problem running a chest freezer at the shack.

Have a chest freezer at work with a KWH meter hooked up to it. You're right they don't use much energy.
It seems your biggest problem is not the battery's ESR but their self-discharge (leakage). Hopefully one day Redflow's redox battery will be affordable.
