He says in the video, "Don't do it with something that's obviously an RV." Don't think the EV owners and charging station owner would take kindly to a truck and trailer backed up to their charging station.

At this time, you won't find many charging stations that will accommodate a truck and trailer. Tesla has a few, but you wouldn't be able to use them, anyway.

I did not watch much of that video, enough to know I would not use him as an example of safe engineering. He actually drives around with all this stuff just flopping around?

The guy in the video is, indeed, an outlier. But, he's trying. There are many folks out there with used tesla, Nissan, etc takeout batteries. 

Much safer with batteries designed for our uses, imo.

Don't get too caught up in outlier youtubes. Honestly.
