Welcome to Justanswer.com, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to assist you.
If you need a printer thats made to be mobile, works in a car. Then I strongly suggest the Canon IP110.
Its small, has decent print quality, and it has a car charger adapter, as well as an extra battery you can purchase so you can run the printer off battery power.
Heres the printer. http://amzn.to/1FAhGKw

Undestood. From y our description it sounds like your shumacher converter has failed or burnt out. Im sure the heat could also be a factor in that.
You may want to consider replacing the converter. This one is low cost and rated highly by thousands of users. http://amzn.to/1R9VaJO
As far as ink jets drying out. Ink jets will dry out anywhere, if something isnt printed at least once every two weeks. During the Summer months, you may want to make sure you print something once a week. Most of the issues I see with inkjets are due to the printers sitting idle for extended periods of time, even in temperate climates.
