Skip thinks that the inverter would not handle it, however, you could try running the engine at 1/2 throttle, set to charge the house bank, and it is possible the inverter might let it work. We have four times the amps and can run the 1500 watt microwave, but do not use it too long or everyday. He feels a better and more efficient method would be to place the wife on the bow, turn engine on and motor around till her hair is dry.
