On a recent family road trip home (~2hrs long), we made good use of our 13" TV/VCR combo and power inverter. The trip home was uneventful..but the next morning, the Ody (1 mth old OEM battery) was dead!! Not a single flicker of a dash/dome light nor a click of the starter! I had to jump start it the next day, and fortunately all was well after that. We haven't used the inverter since, and am worried that the same thing will happen again, but this time leave us stranded at some god awful wayside restaurant. It appears that the battey was not recharging as the inverter sucked juice away. Do I have to turn off the inverter about 1/2 hr from home so that the battery can recharge itself? That sounds odd though. Any ideas or suggestions??
