How about buy an ammeter from Harbor Freight, and see what the actual
current draw is?
Don't cut the wires off the ricker switch, unscrew them. Wire nut the
appliance cord on, and plug into inverter. Worked for me, and I don't
even need a new ricker switch when I'm done.
Marine trolling battery will give you MUCH better service than an auto
battery. Car batteries are designed for shallow discharge, a deep
discharge like a day's furnace would not be good. Marine trolling are
MUCH better suited.
You may also be able to wire in the marine battery to your present
UPS, if it uses a 12 volt battery. Don't even need a new ricker
