Rep Power: 8
You are correct 1000w is 8amp at 120v and 80 at 12v.
With AC it is better to use KVA to avoid the confusion. To get Watts in an AC circuit you need to know the Power Factor (PF) but lots of us just us Watts which means we are using a PF of 1 which doesn't really happen in real life but close enough.
In other words I understood the OP was referring to the DC winding that comes with many generators which is limited to about 8 amps at 12volts, and as pointed out rarely gives you even that.
Have faith that the oceans are going to rise and flood the world, that plague and pestilence brought on by Climate Change is going to punish us for not believing. Please do as they say it is our only hope. :P
