I want to use 8 x 5 foot (58w) fluoresant lights to illuminate my advertising truck.
I am not an electrician and know nothing what so ever about it and have been getting all sorts of advise and was wondering if someone here can help me.
I want to supply the power for these fluoresants from the vehicles battery/alternator - I have been told I can get a 12 volt inverter and replace the inverter that is supplied with the household fitting and it should all work from the battery from the vehicle - I was also told I may need to upgrade the alternator, is this correct guys?
I really would appreciate any advise on this before I start this job.
I have infact just had one of my trucks fitted with fluoresants supplied by a Honda petrol generator - that followed a failure with a dc to ac 1000w inverter which was not any good, I just thought it would be a less cost effective way of converting my other trucks plus it would be less hassle.
Is the generator the way to go guys - What do you think?
