    How about a 20$ inverter from your vehicle to the controller. You already have to have your vehicle there with the compressor. Now you have power. I have done it multiple times.

    We are making this a huge issue for something so simple.

    well if you are also winterizing the house , find a inlet on the house , shut off the main then everything in the house off and run the sprinkler controller and blow it out . Done and if you are in it to make money the more cfm the less time to do the job , just keep the pressure 90 psi or less
