Crock Pot

Has anyone used a crock pot while traveling? Can I plug it into the outlet in the galley and put it in the sink on low? Will the inverter handle the wattage of the crock pot on low? Thanks.

I have a small (1Ĺ quart) 12vDC crock pot specifically to use in my Interstate while en route, so I don't need to use the inverter.

Even though a crock pot will heat food without direct supervision, for trailer owners it would still be better to have the crock pot in the tow vehicle with you where you can keep an eye on it, and a 12vDC crock pot lets you do that. And since the 12vDC crock pot has a lid hold-down strap, even if it tips over in a panic stop or something, it's unlikely to spill much (the lid is not watertight, but better a lid that's fastened down than a lid that's not fastened down).

I used it in my former motor home with great success. We may do it again this year in our AS. I would secure it in the sink & secure the lid with a few small pieces of duct tape. It's great to have dinner ready after setting up in the campground & having a cocktail or two.

Crock Pot

I used a small crock pot when we made a trip to Maine and stayed in one campground for 3 weeks. When we went out for the day we pulled it in outside with the lid strap on. We didn't feel comfortable leaving it inside the trailer unattended. Also when we took our cross country trip this past fall we left it home. Too much on the go to have time for that type of cooking. But I'll never forget the great stews we came home to in Maine after being out all day on the trails. That was fun.

At the winter tin can tourist convention we had a crock pot dinner. I estimate there were at least fifty crock pots there, great food. Over two hundred people.

Yes, the inverter will handle the load, even the older 600 watt ones that were installed as an option up to 2013. The new ones since 2014 are 1000 watt inverters. The tow vehicle and/or solar charging should keep the actual battery draw down to a minimum when traveling. Most crockpots use in the range of 200 watts on low. It depends on their size.

Yesterday we cooked our traditional St Patrick's day feast, corned beef, cabbage,carrots, potatoes celery onions, all in the crock pot. As usual it was delicious after cooking for 10 hours.

When not crocking, we use our 'NewWave' oven.. it is portable... does great fries (no oil), burgers, chicken, seafood... and, wait for it...................... bacon! Yep...

Put bacon on the grill, drippings will provide a great place to fry up some eggs!... and if you are a "wast not want not" person, use bread to soak up the rest of the liquid bacon... Or pour over our dog's food... after all, he deserves it after saving my life...
