12 volt power question

I hope someone can help me. I have a Micronta 12v power supply that converts 120 to 12 volts. I have a Zodi shower that runs off my car battery and according to Zodi pulls 1 1/2 amps. My wife and I will be traveling through Mexico this winter and due to the lack of hot water in hotels we want to use our own system. The shower uses propane and electric to heat the water. There is a pump that pulls the water out of a bucket runs it through the heater and makes hot water. The back of the converter and this is over 10 years ols says 120 vac, 60 watts output 13.8vdc-2.5a
Anypne know if this will be sufficient to run this pump? Thanks

If the shower pulls 1.5 amps from a 12V battery, then a converter that can deliver 2.5 amps DC should work just fine.

Thanks for the quick answer. I somehow had in my head that 100w=1a and the 60 w on the label threw me off some. Thanks again
