Need to run a/c mooring, no gen?
I will check into that about the coleman thing. But not sure how effecient it would be exposed to the salt water so much.
As for running the engine 90% or even 100% to maintain the a/c would be okay. Would not burn that much fuel. it is not something that would be continually. With putting wear and tear on a deisel engine versus getting a generator and placing it into the boat and maintain it as well just seems to be a heck of alot of money. I hoep to find a boat with genset on it, but if not, to get a good deal want to make sure I can run teh a/c if needed set up some other way. I think it was hook up a large enough altenator, run that to the investerters or straigth to the a/c on a second switch and run it while the engine is going. I mostly need this for a naop in the afternoon possibly or in an extreme case of heat exaustion. I know I can take a cold shower and drink ice water, but want something that can be okay if needed.
Thanks for the input to guy and gals.
