I'm looking to size up a ups / back up power supply for my stove. Need to figure out the amp draw from all the electrics. Does anyone know what it is? Has anyone retrofitted a ups onto their stove yet? Searched the forums but didn't come up with anything. I'm sure this has been done by someone somewhere.

Shame on me for not checking the web site. Guess I'll check to see what the coal trol system draws on thier web site.

Do a search on here for Back UP Power Supply, many of us have different setups, either UPS, Inverters, generators, etc....
Make sure you get a decent one with a Modified or FULL SINE wave output, if you get the cheap UPS, it may have a square wave output and could damage your motors/blowers, it will definitely make them hummm pretty loud too.

More info on inverters/batteries.
