Here is what I am thinking;
I have a 2005 Toyota Tacoma that has the TRD package. With this package there is an electrical outlet in the bed of the truck. I think it can push 400 Watts while in park or neutral. The engine does not have to be running to power the outlet. This said, I have a friend that owns a radiator repair shop. He said he would give me a radiator fan to use in cooling the dog off. I am sure I am not the first person to think of this idea. I am not particularly electrical or mechanical in nature so I need some help. What would it take to convert the radiator fan (which I assume is 12v or 5 v) into a fan that could run off the outlet in the bed of the truck? Could someone explain how to do this, or if it can be done? It may be that it can be done but it too much trouble. I can easily use zip ties to hold it to the kennel door by using the mounting holes already in the fan housing/shroud. Any ideas? Has anyone else done this, or something similar? I think it would be really good for the Spring/Sommer HT circuit I have been running. Thanks a bunch. If anyone has done this pictures of the setup would be good.
