Air Conditioner


Recommended Posts

I have an air conditioner on the box of my truck. Right now I have it wired to a receptacle on the side, and I plug the truck in when its parked. I was considering hooking it up to a big inverter so it could run when the truck was in transit. Has anyone done this? Would I need a different alternator? Thoughts?

You can do it but it'll be cost prohibitive. I use a large battery pack w/ a 3000 watt inverter to run a 12 cu. ft. freezer for frozen items and ice cream. My set up was approx 1,000.00. To run the a/c you'll need lots more power and batteries. I don't think you can get an alternator big enough to provide that kind of power without impacting your vehicles electrical system.
