All the appliances mentioned are high wattage power consumers. Some pushing into the 800+ watts range. 800 watts at 120VAC is 6.66 amps. Just doing a straight conversion to 12 VDC is more or less a factor of 10 in amps plus any in efficiencies along the way . So the 1200 watts 120VAC curling iron, hair dryer, coffee and such might demand 120 amps of 12VDC to do the same work. How long will a reasonably size battery bank last with a power demand of 100 to 120 amps? What size wire is needed for efficient 100 amp 12 VDC power distribution?

12VDC HVAC? In an American sized coach? Sure but you're going to give up all you under floor storage for batteries.

If may be Glamping but there are something's we just can't pack in.

I think my inverter on and my Delonghi coffee maker makes a good pot of coffee. When it's done brewing put it in the thermos and lasts till after lunch just fine. 600w for ~10 mins.

This has always worked great for us. I laugh at my friends who have to get their Keurigs going in the morning.

By the time their Keurig is ready to go, and they've added a little more wear and tear to their gennie and equipment, I'm sitting down with my hot cup of perfect coffee.

Oh well. I hope their coffee is good, too, for what they're paying for it compared to mine.

This is the ticket - works just like the plugin but uses your gas stovetop to supply heat instead of electricity.

All of those issues went away for me with a few simple things...
Inverter $400, another battery $90, auto transfer switch $45, wiring $60.
and about 6 hours of time to install everything.

Now I can turn on my inverter and drip my coffee very quietly in the morning .

Of course I still carry a melitta coffee drip system too.... just in case!

That's pretty cool. But for $210 I'll make instant coffee for a while yet! Yikes

Lol. Somehow I get the impression the OP was writing tongue in cheek ( at least I hope so) and no one caught that . 🙃. For the record though .. I myself will definitely buy in to the French press .. Or a mocha pot!!

What I find interesting is that all Mr Coffee did is make one of these automatic:

https://www.melitta.com/

With the camper we have the same coffee but use the kettle. I've made it in everything from their pot to a mug to a quart thermos. All one really needs is the cone and filters. ;-)
