Or you could hook up a 120v transformer. I think the start up amp draw is around 10amps and then it goes down once the unit gets going.That was a cool video. I’m definitely interested in learning more. It says it’s 12 volt so I assume we would hook it up to the truckmount battery. I wonder if it could run all night without killing the battery.
5500 watt, did you mean to say that?I know this may sound a little crazy but I just plug in a small 5500 watt electric heater and close it into the truck. Works great. If the temperature looks like it is going to 0 or below I will put 2 in. I also run the TM until it gets warm before plugging in heater(s). Electric is about $10.00 per night but still way cheaper than a blower and tool replacement. Have a Ford Genisis TM . I would garage it if I were any further North. (In Missouri)
We use the 175,000btu cannons to heat homes under construction. One in basement and one in greatroom will cook the whole house. I wouldnt leave them unattended though. Lol and definitely not in confined spaces. They tend to melt stuff.
