is this possible? you people that put xmas lights on your rigs, how do you power them? i know an inverter would be the obvious answer but is there any other way you could run AC house lights on DC current?
Correct. Light bulbs will run on both AC and DC, doesn't matter. Problem is that the 120v AC bulbs won't light up very well, if much at all with 12 volts.BroncoRex said:Light bulbs do not care what the frequency of the power is, only voltage. House power is 110 volts 60 Hz, Bronco power in 12 volts 0 Hz. There if you plug a house lamp into the Bronco it will light only very dim. If you plug a Bronco lamp into the house well......... byby bronco light. O, the "Hz" is the frequency.
