    It should run that without a problem. Are you planning on idling the truck all night though?

    Get a marine deep cycle battery and use an inverter. Test it at home. This way you know of you can get through the night(s).

    The outlet will run it, but the amp draw on the truck battery is going to be more like 10 amps at 12volts. You'll kill the battery for sure. And you don't want to sleep in the bed with the truck idleing. The CO from the exhaust will get in.
