I was thinking that I would get an inverter to run my 20" television in the evening when I have no hookups so I don't have to run my generator. My house battery is strong enough to handle a few hours of TV, I think. I know I'm going to have to hook it up to the battery directly, so I want to know how others have done this.
It doesn't have to be a huge expensive inverter either, but what would be suggested in terms of size? Do I run an extension cord from the inverter which is clamped onto the battery? We have a 2653 and have not used it much yet, but this is one thing I'd like to be able to do. I go to dog shows and if I want to watch late night TV I'm out of luck because quiet time is after 11PM. Besides, I don't want to run the generator all night.
So, suggestions on brands, types and size? How about the ones at Walmart, I think my local Wally world has black and decker ones. Or, do I need a "pure sine wave" inverter? Please say no
