    How did this adapter work? Does the truck have to be on for it to be powered?

    Too many
    I'm not sure I'd run anything requiring too much power out of that. Not sure the wiring can handle much.

    I plan to run my power inverter through that. Is that asking too much from it?

    I don't think it's on unless the truck is the fuse is 30 amp so there is a good bit of power there. It's used to charge a camper battery so it makes sense for it to be off when the truck is not running so you won't end up with a dead truck battery. Fused at 30 amps it's good for a max of 360 watts @ 12 volts assuming 90% efficient that's good for 324 watt inverter max .
