Your math is correct, but maybe that means that it is the maximum capacity at which the computer can run or something. Another thing to keep in mind with the inverter is that it says it requires 20 amps to be able to acheive the wattage it states on the label. I've had an inverter in a pickup before. I don't recommend running it off of one of these outlets due to the small size of the wires. If the inverted doesn't get enough power, it creates a terrible whine. Just beware of that. What I did in that truck (it was a 2010 chevy) is hooked it to the trailer brake wires, that worked great, but don't forget to shut it off so you don't drain the battery. With having a trailer, which I'm guessing you do, that may not be the greatest idea, but it may still work. Not sure. Just my thoughts any way.
