    How long can you run a power inverter with the engine off is you're just watching TV?

    TV size does matter. The small one is 60 watt and big flat is about 200 w.
    If your truck with 4 good batteries the small one can work about 100 hours, the big one about 52 hours
     
    Tanker Life Thanks this.

    Thanks. So just a few hours before bed on a 10 hour break is no problem at all then.

    As long as batteries are in good shape connections are clean and tight. Shouldn’t be much of a problem.

    I'm in a single battery SUV running an inverter for my laptop. Idling for about 10-15min every 60-90 mins keeps my battery charged. Might want to do something similar.
