I understand they make these neat things called “generators”.

I’d check into one.

Baloney. I could make a place for it. Probably quicker and cheaper than what he’s proposing.

This came out of my sick mind.

Isn't that 400 ampHr of 48v, which is equal to 1600 ampHrs of 12v
A/C using 1200w the 800w of solar is Not going to keep up with energy use
1/3 of the needed energy will come from the batteries, but You have a surplus of battery power
The OP does not

No. It's 100ah @ 48v. I don't expect solar to keep up. The a/c is cycling.

You must be delusional. The OP has a GRAND CHEROKEE, NOT a Truck. Besides, I want YOU in front of me if I rear end you with 10 gallons of gasoline sticking out the back of your truck. I would bet, Having Gasoline mounted like you have must be a violation of some Law, as long as being plain stupid. Ever hear of the Ford Pinto[emoticon] Doug
