12 volt appliances - wanted -TV-plasma tv, microwave, washer

Regarding the original post, discussing the addition of lots of appliances while perhaps attempting to save energy with LED lighting seems out of balance. I suspect that after you do a quick energy audit of your typical day or week with those appliances (12v or 120v), and any lighting, the lighting will contribute a woefully small amount to your total usage. And if your running the generator that long anyway, you might as well enjoy the light quality that halogen bulbs provide, no? Best luck in your endeavors, and with that generator, please remember to be kind to your anchorage and mooring neighbors at night.

Best,
Chad
