If you must run the blender directly from the genny it sounds like you'll
just need to plug in something else at the same time. A drop light or something like that
comes to mind. Maybe you should charge your phone while you are
making drinks

OR was this just a test? Why not charge house batteries while you make
drinks? You did say the blender worked inside the trailer....

Slickerdoodle! It works. Started up the generator. Plugged in the J/B and then the drill. The light did not come on for the J/B. I hit the drill for a split second and the light came on instantly for the J/B. Hit the button on the J/B and wah lah! Satisfaction.

I tried the extension cord again and no good on that either. The light on the extension cord came on but it wasnt enough of a draw to ignite the J/B. I am going to try a battery charger and see if that works. I dont plan on bringing the drill along so I can make some juice. Its been raining/snowing/sleeting most of the weekend so no dice on testing that charger.

I am extremely grateful for the advice and next time I am passing thru Iowa I can stop by and serve said mixed drink. The problem is the co-pilot believes this to be a non-alcoholic blender and only used for veggies. If I have learned one thing in life its let the women believe what they want to believe. We men will be much happier!
