Re: power inverters

I like the Tripp Lite Inverters for RV applications when I'm using a deep cycle 12 volt battery. Not the least expensive, [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] but they hold up well. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] Be sure to check out the Application Guide first.

Re: power inverters

At least 700 watt continuous. If you watch the department store sale flyers you can usually find a 700-750 watt continous/1500 watt peak power inverter for ~$50.

Anything more than that and you should consider buying a small generator. A small generator from 20-30 years ago usually runs on a 3.5hp motor or so and has a 1000 watt continous/1500 watt peak head on it. I have one I run the house on to keep the furnace going. I picked it up for $50 or something about 5 years ago. It's quieter than a pushmower.
