I added a very nice 1600 Watt power inverter, mounted it directly to the back of the Driver pedestal of our 2005 Mercedes Westfalia Airstream Class B RV.
Setting a large electric crock pot inside a sturdy milk crate on the floor, we spent a few minutes browning the chicken and Italian sausage on our outside propane stove, then loaded these along with potatoes, carrots and other ingredients to produce a delicious stew/casserole type meal which cooked on low heat during the day and was ready to eat when we arrived at our camping destination six hours later.
This became our favorite way to prepare the evening meals for our 11,600-mile road trip from Alaska to Colorado, to Pennsylvania, and home again to Alaska.
The inverter also had enough capacity to run a laptop and charge up two USB devices without overloading the inverter. Noticed that running TWO crock pots was drawing too much current and tripped the inverter offline.
