Would it cook running off an inverter whilst we drive. It could sit in the sink and stew nicely.

If the inverter is running off the engine battery.

If its running off the hab battery the split charge may not be able to provide enough current to keep the battery charged.

Just checked ours.... 190 to 200watts.
Thats around 16amps and unlikely a split charge will deliver anywhere near 16amps.

Our solar would cover that with help from the engine --------we we run slow cooker or remoska while driving quite a bit, never had the slightest hint of low batteries

MrD is more practical. Have you considered the real cost of generating electricity via the engine? Only use electricity to cook when it's available from EHU.

Yep, no problem. We have often done a ham/gammon joint in ours, whilst motoring along. (y)
We use silicone elasticated cord to keep the lid in position, and free from rattles.

Cheers,

Jock. :)

We've used ours from inverter from leisure batteries while driving, but only when the sun is shining. The split charger cannot cope with this and the fridge without solar support.

The slow cooker doesn't use as much as its rating as once hot it switches on and off on the thermostat.
With a b2b charger you should be OK

Long time
I use a slow pot but not whilst travelling as most times I need slopot on for longer than the journey.

We’re away at the moment so don’t have access to the slow cooker. It’s a small one for 2 people
The inverter was by Fellowes
