Unfortunately I would soon have a dead battery if I did that. A previous owner installed a megawatt custom radio/stereo system that, believe or not, is too loud to turn up all the way while playing the William Tell and the 1812. It consumes gobs of power. On the other hand, a battery operated radio might be a good bet. Thanks for the idea.
