Question Stoker amp draw/ marine battery

I am wanting to run our stoker and 10cfm fan off of a marine battery and inverter. Anybody have any idea of the amp draw of the Stoker or how long it will run off of a battery. It might say on the stoker but it is buried in the trailer and i cant get to it. Also any info on marine batteries and inverters would be helpful. My inverter has a auto shutoff at 10 volts and I don't know if that will be a problem.

It has to be a tiny draw.... When the early Guru's came out guys were wiring two 6 volt lantern batteries in series to run them. I've seen them powered off of the little rechargeable lawn and garden tractor batteries.

The Stoker manual claims the power supply is 2 amps (5 volt supply).

Shane, I don't run Stokers But mine are the same principal. I have a 75aH Marine battery, and a 400W Inverter and it will run my temp controllers(2) and fans(2) for about 2 days. Duty cycle will need to be factored into the mix also (how often the fans come on, and how long the fans stay on).
