12v Heated Blanket

Do you know if you can run a 12v heated blanket off the receptable in the cargo area while the engine is running?

Re: 12v Heated Blanket

If you have the 120V inverter option installed you should be able to use a standard electric blanket. IIRC, they don't draw that much current. You won't need a 12V version of electric blanket.

The 12v version that I have used for years draws about 3amps - should not be an issue
