how much does a block heater draw?

We have a AC 7000 and it won't start in the cold unless it gets plugged in for an half hour or so and i want to get a power inverter for my truck.
but I'm not sure how many watts it draws.

I found a 1000 watt converter for sale but I'm not sure if it'll be big enough

Thanks

1000w isnt big enough to run it safely. You need at least a 2k watt
