Also, how long would you run the inverter before running/driving the car?
When I plugged the fans in the car was running, wife used the inverter the night before to blow up air mattresses (not running but only took about 10 min) and we charged up the cell phones while driving around Sunday. Its just a small 130Watt one that I got to power a laptop in the car. I'm thinking of getting a bigger one for next time maybe 7500 watts (ok they call those generators :rofl: )

During the ice storm power outage, I ran my Channing III off an 800 watt inverter. I wrapped some microwavable hot pockets in tin foil and put them inside the stove next to the ash pan and waited about an hour. Blow off the ash and un-wrap and they were nice and hot. Cooking on the top of the stove did not work quite so well because of the 2 inch blower vent gap above the firebox. 8-)

Turn the blower off and use the stove as a radiant stove while you are cooking. When done cooking turn the blower back on.

Just last night my son completed his Boy Scout rank advancement by cooking our dinner in our Harman II. He made foil dinners with potatoes, carrots and ground beef patty. He double wrapped the ingredients in foil and placed them on the coals. The stove top temperature when he started was 150. I had let the fire burn down so he could work on with it. He cooked the packets for 15 minutes before flipping them for another 15. It was yummy good but the best part was I didn’t have to do anything. Lisa
