Crappace: I have a 7x16 fish house and have two Deepcycle batteries hooked in parallel, thats tie the two plus's together and the two negitive's together. This give you 12vdc for the lights and the TV, plus what ever else you want to run, marine radio, etc. The heater on mine doesn't need any power as the unit developes a low current to run the thermostat. I also ran a line to the hitch area with an connecrtor, so I can plug the circut into my 12vdc lighter plug at the rear of my Denali, to charge the batteries while I'm driving to where ever I'm going to fish. The two batteries last about two days before the need a recharge. For that I have a 1000 watt Honda generator with a battery charger that is in the 50 amp mode, for the quick charge when needed. I also use that generator to power my microwave, heats soup or whatever, when your on the ice.... Hope this helps...Kaz
