pirate Group 24 Battery System Setup

I have 4 group 24 12 v deep cycle batterys approx 300 amp hour
42 watts of solar via 5 small panels, and a 410 watt invertor. I run
My laptop about 6 hrs a day which uses around 100 watts, 5 watt cabin
Lights very little and I am trying to add a small 12volt cooler or fridge.
With a 800 watt generator for back up and I am building a small wind
Generator. I am a bit bad with the math calculations for this. Will this be
Enough to run for 4-5 days before recharge? Solar is a bit small but
Planing on adding 100 watt more. Living on the hook victoria b.c. Any ideas
Sorry about the txt on the blackberry. Have to use group 24's size issues and cost.

Thanks shawn
