In reality, we ordered the 1,000 watt inverter to get some parts in place on the new 27FB Classic. We plan to install a 300 to 400 watt solar system and a 2,000+ watt inverter with 4 Lifeline GSM batteries on/in the new trailer when it gets here in February 2014. We will boil the water in a tea kettle on the propane stove top and pour it on the grounds in the Melitta brown paper filters.
We have both the newer ten cup and older 12 cup Cuisinart coffee machines in different locations and like them a lot. I saw no need to use that much power out of the batteries. The old 12 cup unit takes about ten minutes to make the coffee and the carafe heater stays on a long time. On the 10 cup unit, it heats a metal plate in the bottom of the carafe and shuts off after brewing. Both units draw power all the time to run their clocks.
