    Air Conditioner on Power Inverter in Teardrop

    I get the question quite a bit at www.outsidesupply.com, many people ask about running an air conditioner (AC) on a power inverter. Most people would like to run a window unit for a short period of time to keep something cool when there is no other power source.

    My teardrop camper is a perfect example. I do not want to run my air conditioner for 24 hours, I only want to get about 3 to 4 hours of cycled run time. This gives me enough cooling to get in my teardrop camper at a rest stop and get some rest before continuing to drive. I don't do this often but on my trip to the Florida Keys it was great to have this option.

    We do a lot of printing here at Outside Supply.
    So it is no surprise that we print in our vehicles. In fact we have several setups that allow different kinds of printing. In my wife's car I needed and easier solution with no cables. So I decided on a wireless inkjet printer. I used the Go Power 300 Watt Sine Wave Power Inverter to provide the clean stable power need for the printer. I used an old breakfast tray for the printing caddy. This caddy allowed for storage for labels, packing slips, and envelopes.

    Inverter Car Ink-jet Wireless PrinterWireless printing in my car was my goal. I wanted to avoid, if possible, from running a wireless router since it would require more power and more wires. I found this Great HP inkject printer with 802.11G built into the printer. I set up an Ad Hoc network and can now print using my wireless card.
