I imagine you keep your amp draw on the dc side of inverter within the exceptable charging amps of the bolts 12v battery system. I will also look into the possibility of extending or disabling the 2 hr max shutdown of the bolt . It’s troublesome to me when I sleep in my car when iam on call and like the ac running in summer
There are several workarounds for the stupid timeout and auto shutdown. I mentioned one at https://www.chevybolt.org/threads/using ... ost-520812
Someone else in a FB group suggested another simpler one but I'll need to find it again and try it the next time I have an extended outage.
I had to run my fridge, some lights, laptop and other stuff for over 24 hours at a time via my Bolt an inverter off the 12 volt bus w/the car in READY mode "thanks" to two PG&E PSPSes we had last year.
Yeah, n/a in the US but over 7000 of these systems installed in Japan as of late 2017. See my pointer at https://mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic.php?p=504949#p504949
about that figure.
I have some other pointers for Nissan's and Mitsbushi Motors's efforts at https://mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic.php?p=571901#p571901
including what I saw at Tokyo Motor Show 2019. A copy of the PDF I pointed to can be found at https://web.archive.org/web/20171011110 ... -Japan.pdf
