    Have a 2020 DCLB with leer topper. I need to get power for dog crate fans to bed with truck running or not. The inverter only works with truck running. Any diy suggestions!

    I could see something like that being effective. It says it will charge while operating. Plug it in to the bed inverter to charge while the truck is on then let it run off battery when not.

    Thx!!! Looks perfect! I may see about running a wire to add a cigarette lighter plug to cubby in bed as fan runs on 12v also.

    Ryobi makes a bunch of battery operated fans. The batteries that run their tools run their fans too. They’re readily available at Home Depot.

    This is what I was thinking too. I've been eyeing the Dewalt version since I already have batteries and charger.

    I have a couple of the Ryobi One + fans. They are great for post mountain bike ride cool downs in the humid GA summers.
