On a personal level I have never used a crock pot in the MH. I prepare the food at home and pack in foil pans. They heat well on the gas grill
We'll likely pick this one up. Only $15 through Amazon!

If it needs to fit in the sink to clean it, just get those inserts. Reynolds Wrap Slow Cooker Liners - Best Price

Love them!

You might consider a slow cooker / rice cooker combo. Ours is 5 qts but is more vertical. Plus we can use it for a variety of rice dishes as well as crockpot dishes. We have 5 kids between the age of 12 and 16 so we need the larger size and enjoy the flexibility of having only one appliance. It's also lighter weight than our crock pots at home.

I like that idea but not the website. It tried to put six cookies other than its own on my computer when I tried to check it out. I'm sure there are other places that carry the liners.

You can get them at most any grocery store. Makes cleanup a snap.

Sorry about that, I just googled them. They are amazing!

Are you concerned about washing the crock pot or do you want to put it in the sink to cook while on the road? If cooking while traveling, remember you'll have to run the generator...and make sure your CORD is long enough to reach from the outlet to the sink.

Walmart stocks the crock pot liners.

We use an Inverter (one I used for my lap top when at work) and I installed a 12V outlet near the sink. 12 Volts from chassis battery. Never worry while traveling, got our pot (smaller than S&B) at Big Lots. Removable insert, variable temp, all the comforts of home.
Drop in sink and go.

Don't invest in a 2 qt. pot. It just isn't enough. I'd recommend a 4-5 quart Rival as it has a setting called Auto. It cooks on high for an hour and automatically switches to low for the balance of the time. If you're on the road with this on, I suggested putting in in the sink. As far as washing it, it fits in my RV sink but I usually use the Crock Pot liners, which are great.

We had the same issue and found one at Target that was reasonably sized and fit in the sink.

Congrats on the new RV and I understand your question regarding the sink, you want to place it in the sink, plugged in, so it is cooking while you drive. I would measure the sink and search the internet, most discriptions will list the size.

There is a Blog on Woodalls discussing crock pots, may you could post this question there as well?

My recommendation is to use the one you have because it fits your needs, and you already have it! When it is empty, wipe it out with paper towels or newspaper, and wash it outside with dish soap or baking soda and water.
I wipe everything before washing in the RV sink anyways, and if it doesn't fit, I wash it outside, or in the laundry sink at an RV park. If you don't have access to water outside, just put a little water from the RV into it, and wash it out, dump the water into the sink, put a little more water to rinse it, dump that and you're done.

And am I ever glad I stopped in here to find out there are crock pot liners! Even better.
And I had no idea you could cook in the sink! Don't think I'll do that, though my sink is big enough, but at least now I know I can. Good tips here.

How interesting about the slow cooker liners. I never even knew such a thing existed. We don't do a lot of crock pot cooking but we'll be sure to pick some of those up. The link in one of the posts, for soap.com is cool. The company is one of my clients from work and they have an incredibly high tech, almost 1 million sf distribution center here in Northern Nevada. Robotic devices bring whole shelves of product to pickers who then pick it for shipping.
