Primitive camping that is. Any ideas. Those 12 volt to 120 volt converters that plug into your car will they work. Pulling from your truck battery all nite?

Sounds like you need to get a Stay in Charge.

No... they will not work. In a pinch, pull your vehicle battery and put your boat battery on it to charge.

If you do it a lot or do 2 day tournaments I would either buy a Stealth charger that charges on the run or a small Honda generator.

you might end up with a charged boat battery but a dead truck battery. Get a extra one and charge at house

With the price of the super small generators now days why not just get one of them you can charge the batteries as well maybe have some lights at night. Now days they are about as small as a piece of luggage for under $200.
