  • DC power to AC ?

    I am looking into running my truck on AC power, for like shows, or BBQ's when I don't want to run my batteries down or at a show all day. Anyone here know how I can do this?

          Edit2:: There are AC-DC power supplies, but if i remember, they were fairly low current. like this
