I tried to connect power cord to the AC outlet in my truck, but it tripped the breaker. So, I tried using an 800 watt inverter, but it would not work.
Does anyone know of a solution to allow for use in a vehicle? What are the power load requirements? If I knew these I could probably find an inverter that would work.
I suspect you need a pure sine wave inverter (your 800 watt is probably modified sine wave). There is a teardown of the Venus 2000 on YouTube and it reveals that the motor is rated for 1/16 hp so you need at least 47W.
