Will that jump pack act as a 3000 watt inverter?

Will that jump pack act as a 3000 watt inverter?

 

Not sure to whom this question is addressed, but after posting above, I did some more online research to discover that my current (accidental pun) portable inverter puts out only 400 watts. Like I said, I have little knowledge of electrical components. That is why I asked for input from those with more knowledge and experience.

 

I did find this article about installing an inverter that seems to accord with Raspy's idea:

If I were to go this route, I would hire a qualified expert to do the work. The author of this article mentions making 1,800 watts available. I don't know if that would be sufficient, but paying more for a higher-wattage inverter and paying for a qualified expert to do the work might still, in the end, be more cost-effective and pay off with the other benefits that Raspy mentions.

 

What other things might folks who may be thinking of using their tow vehicle as a generator need to consider?

I wouldn’t worry too much about the drone of a generator. With the AC on you could have a diesel locomotive idling next to you and you wouldn’t hear it.
