 20" TV Help

I have a 20" flat screen TV that I put in my trunk.  The only problem is that I am having a problem powering it.  The TV uses 60 watts and I have a power inverter that can power 400 watts.  I have been using a lawnmower battery and hooking my inverter up, but it only works for about 2 hours. 

Any suggestions to how I can power my tv without draining my car battery?

Yeah, hook it up to the car battery, and turn your car on. Either that or plug the thing into a wall outlet.

No matter what you do you are going to be draining a battery if you dont have the car running. And I highly doubt your lawnmower battery is a deep cycle bat, so you are probably killing that battery every time you drain it like that.

I actually hooked it up to my car battery (the lawnmower battery just wasn't working).  Do I have to keep my car running while running the tv or can I just start the car and let it run a while every couple of hours?
