My inverter has croaked, so I need to buy a new one. In the meantime I have to run extension cords to different electrical outlets to power my computers, printer, TV, etc. There are inverter outlets next to my desk and in the cabinet above the desk where the TV is. With the inverter inoperable, those outlets are now useless until I get a new inverter.
I had already connected my surge protector and battery chargers to a regular outlet but didn’t have enough extension cords for the TV and antenna. This afternoon I went to four places to get a 3-prong grounded extension cord with multiple outlets before I finally found one at Lowe’s. Now I’m fully operational, electrically.
