Default Cooking in a CrockPot in the sink while driving

Davydd - you mentioned that you cook in a Crockpot in the sink while driving. We own a 2004 Roadtrek and are wondering if your electrical system is different from ours which would allow you to use your coach battery to do this type of cooking? Thanks.

You should be able to cook in a Roadtrek. A 2006 Roadtrek Adventurous couple inspired us to try it.

Yes, that should work just fine. Check the label on the slow cooker to make sure it is below 360 watts. Most slow cookers will be around 300 watts. I have a large one that is 290 watts. I had a 2004 Roadtrek 190 Popular and it had a 650 watt Tripp-Lite inverter/charger. It was installed by Roadtrek to power the TV etc. so the installation did did not take full advantage of that inverter. That's why I mentioned 360 watts and not 650 watts. My 2004 RT 190P had more than adequate wiring but that wiring was protected by a 30 amp self-resetting thermal circuit breaker. Volts x amps = watts. 12 volts x 30 amps = 360 watts. A 300 watt or so slow cooker would be well within the capability of your system if it was like mine. You might need to run an extension cord from the TV outlet. Some RT models and later years might have a 50 amp self-resetting thermal circuit breaker so they could use 600 watts.
