I've been back and forth on what to put in my truck for 120Vac source. I have an older 200W Schumacher that I have used ON/OFF over the years and it has done very well for me. But now I am thinking about finally mounting it, now that I have a truck. The thing is, I am thinking about NOT mounting this one and getting a bigger DC/AC inverter? I've been reading that you would need a min 2500W DC/AC inverter and a larger alternator in order to handle loads like a decent size electric motor and the like? If I am to eventually change out the alternator, I really don't want to have to modify the truck very much if at all? I do NOT mind putting in a bigger alternator, but would like to put one in that basically bolts right up without modifications? Is this even possible? Do they make "bigger" alternators to replace the smaller stock ones, but without having to modify anything???
If you have installed inverters in your Taco trucks:
1) what kind (who makes it)
2) how much wattage output does it provide
3) where did you guys/gals install them in or outside the cab
4) if any pics, could you please post them to give me some ideas about mounting and/or where to mount
I have a RegularCab so I'm pretty much S.o.L. when it comes to the "where to mount it", but still have SOME options/places open to me
Thanks for any input and happy 4whln
