It just occurred to me, considering a swarm out of reach without the vac: I already have a deep-cycle battery for the camper. Aside from the weight, any reason I couldn't get an inverter and run my shopvac off of the 12V?

That's a fine idea! I have an inverter in my basement, for one of those "just in case" moments that hasn't happened yet. Knock wood. I may have to employ your idea! :applause:

I run a 6" sander with mine when I do the bottom of my boat. I can also hook up a vacuume to it but my 750 watt inverter doesn't do well with that load.

But yes, an inverter will be nice, just buy a 1500 watt or larger. You'll be happier, longer.

I've got a 2000 watt inverter on my truck that I once ran a leaf blower to blow bees off frames in the field, it worked fine.
