* What is the 12 volt accessory socket rated for.
* What is the procedure for the car activation where the 12 volt socket is activated but hopefully car still "off" or at least not in ready. etc. Not sure I am explaining myself well so bare with me.
PS, I think I asked something like this a while back but can't find it or the response...plus I wasn't sure of all my cooler numbers at the time.
Looking at your needs it looks like you need only about 60ah of electricity. (36 hours times 5 amps divided into three). Sound like a 100ah or bigger deep cycle battery might be all you need instead of leaving your car on for a day and a half.
