For a long time I have followed discussions about how to use an inverter --- battery 12 V to 115V. (I do not like the idea) However I never did it , so who am I to criticize ?. Yesterday I went to Canadian Tire and got a new one. ( 30 dollars Can) That answers the question -- HOW many watts are they ? A: 400W to maybe 600W. This one is 400W 115V. I have a habit of plugging in all the time when parked at home. And now I find out that too much antifreeze may burn out the heater. That is contradictory to a discussion we had last year. I was using pure water in the summertime. --- resulting in less cooling ? ---- brings on another "Hagarisim" ------ " you can't sometimes always win ". 400Watt inverters are getting real cheap lately --- so it is worth fooling around with. If you do it read my upcoming feature on batteries. Deepcycling is deadly. And blimy do not use the starting battery. Hagar: PS: Heater maker "TEMRO" recommends 50 % solution.
