I was planning on putting an electric fan in and I was wondering how amp draw works. The fan I'm looking at draws 21.6 amps. I currently have a Tuff Stuff 70 amp alternator right now.

It will draw 21.6 amps per hour or approximatly 25 % of your alternator output. I would maybe look for one that draws a bit less.
