greetings from the florida keys !
I was wondering, as I set up my commander for multi month touring, what cooking appliances have been tried, using stock alternator/battery
and a 12v to 110 inverter ?
I am under impression the 5.7 hemi comes with a 175amp alternator; which seems it should supply some serious power while vehicle is running.
I been roaming country 8 years with my subaru outback; but theres about 20 places I want to go that I couldn't make with the subaru. So I got some rough dirt roads in mind to take this commander. Considering a rooftop tent too.
Any advice is welcome.

Generally specs say 160A amp alternator, depends where you read it, I've seen 150A, 160A, and 175A. I haven't seen any aftermarket high amp alternators out there for the Commander. Sounds like some fun plans. Here's a video I ran across a couple of years ago, might help get the thoughts going.

i havent done multimonth but go weekend camping with a truck fridge cooler and coleman suitcase gas stove. both would work fine and no need for an inverter.

Welcome to the forum @G-rad; I lived in the Florida Keys for 17 years from Key West all the way up to Marathon - left there in 2010 - best move I ever made.
