    i would like to know if i can plug a small freezer in the back of the tacoma into the 400watts electric outlet.
    the freezer is rated:115 volt,5 amp,60 hz
    i really need to run the freezer in the back of the pick up for 8 hours drive.

    probalbly not. 115v x 5 amps is 575 running watts. In rush current when compressor starts is much higher (estimated 125%).

    Pack freezer with dry ice... it will last for days.

    Crusher gave you the straight facts. The Dry Ice will do the trick

    So this is how we calculate the power in watts
    115volt x 5 amps =575 watts

    or

    115 volt x 4 amps =460 watts


    thank you

    We can buy dry ice in local Safeway stores around here.. reasonably priced. Read the precautions with Dry Ice. Very dangerous to touch and will freezer burn your freezer contents with direct touch. Oh and don't lock the freezer door! Dry Ice sublimates..(turns directly from solid to gas) and needs room to expand/escape the freezer compartment. Or BOOM!

    plus when you put it in drive I'm pretty sure the wattage drops unless modified.

    isnt that the same calculation? except where are you getting the 4amps?

    get an ultracool icechest. if you prefreeze everthing, and stuff it full..you wont even need dry ice..8 hours aint nothing,with the right ice chest.
