Yup. When I went camping I watched a movie and played some video games, had lights on and speakers and didn't even put a dent in the battery. Then again I also have an Optima lol

I forget what the TV power rating was but I'm sure it was drawing <5A

Ugh, don't call sleeping in a truck camping. Unless you're a girlscout.

That being said I've slept in the bed on a few roadtrips in other trucks

Can't beat sleeping under the stars, or listeing to the rain on a ponch or tarp

Lol whatever suit your "manhood" standard dude but after sleeping in ditch and alot a shitty spot I sure like my comfort when I can have it. Im in the military thus the comment. Naa if I do it, it will be fiberglass recycling 8ft caps but alot more to it, more like an offroad trailer rig.
