with your power strip are you able to turn on and off each plug? Do you have to pull out some things and plug in others..Like I have a fridge that has no on and off. plug it in and it goes..I think I would probably have to unplug it before I plugged in a printer. yes??? What is the highest converter I could get for the 12 volt battery? I think I have a 350 watt now?? It wont run a skill saw...I would like too..!

All it is is an invertor (wattage needs to be determined for what you are going to run) that you can hardwire (which I did at first with a thousand watt unit) then determined I wanted flexability of removing so installed a 350 or 400 watt invertor that just plugs into cig lighter and a power strip is plugged into that. I then just plug the ac cords into the strip for laptop, printer, camera etc. and as a precautionary measure I carry a battery pack to jump the vehicle if I forget to turn things off. It runs my gps which allows me to always know where I am and I do not have to stop and ask directions or look at a map. I travel and make house calls from Maine to South Carolina, I stop at houses in Long Island and do not have to ask for directions, its cool. As far as the van you are converting you could have a built in battery charger that you could run an ac cord to that would make sure your battery is fully charged also. -----Original Message----- From: Bob Noble [mailto:bnoble@xxxxxxxxx] Sent: Tuesday, February 25, 2003 2:55 AM To: pcductape@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [pcductape] Re: Advice Needed So, you are trying to set up the van to run computers and print?
