You might want to look into Sous Vide cooking. It uses 110VAC and is VERY versitile.

OR, precook your food, and reheat in the crock pot after you stop for the night.

I heard about Sous Vide cooking from a full-time RVer who REGULARLY cooks that way while he's driving to his next location (he's a young engineer). He's made a set up that works well in his sink. Sets everything up in the AM and, when he reaches his destination hours later, his meal is ready. Quality zip lock bags work fine; food doesn't have to be under vacuum.

Buy one of these for $6.95 and attach it to one of your batteries. Then cook outside. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

If you want to cook inside, buy one of these for $11.95 and bring it in through the front door. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I can see that working in a MH. Things get kinda rough back in the trailer underway. I haven't checked the draw my anova pulls. If its small and an inverter could work underway off the TV, and.. you can secure all that hot water in the sink without splashing out maybe it would work in a trailer.
Funny, my engineer son bought the Anova for us for Christmas. Makes the best Pork chops ever!

Converters do the opposite.
I said the same thing twice, didn't I? As I get older, it just gets worse.

You would have to turn on the inverter, which converts 120 vac to 12 vdc. It should say 12 vdc and converts to 120 vac
D'oh!!!

Your AS has a converter and an inverter. The converter is powered by 120 vac shore power to provide the 12 vdc needed in the trailer and also charge the batteries.

The AS has an inverter to take 12 vdc from the batteries and make 120 vac for when you're not on shore power, to provide 120 vac for appliances, televisions, etc. that run on 120 vac. Usually, there are only a couple of 120 vac outlets, labeled as being from the inverter, in the AS because the inverter can run down your batteries in short order. The inverter itself requires 12 vdc even if nothing is plugged into the outlets.

You don't want to plug an an electric heater to an inverter outlet. Electric heaters use 1200 to 1500 watts and most AS provided inverters provide only 600 watts. You'll blow the fuses. Even if you didn't, your batteries will be dead very fast, that's a lot amperage to take from the batteries.

[Please let me have it right this time, TG Twinkie ]
