AC/DC inverter--$20, Extension cord--$15, 3-socket 10-volt charger--
Patrick running the numbers on his Blackberry to ensure we have ample
power, PRICELESS......and also a little anal. :)
The debate was thus: Buy all this equipment at a truck stop along the
way or run the genset in the RV. At almost $4.00/hr the genset can
provide power to all appliances, run the AC (for the RV, not the
drivers) and power up all outlets. On the other hand, it's only the
three of us. Would spending that much money on the genset be worth
the price? Obviously, we decided to suck it up, but later Thursday
night we realized how hot the RV instantly gets when you shut it off.
Ergo, we realize we're gonna need it for the race. With 8 people
instead of 3, the body temperature alone will warrant the $$$ spent,
plus it will all provide a little comfort in an otherwise comfortless
endeavor. We're gonna give it a test run later tonight to see how
efficient it is. Adios.
