Ever heard of it? 😉

OP has a 2013 and asked for help. I think they already got it.

Really??? I don't really see it as an issue. We run ours all the time while travelling. We set it in the sink so it is pretty contained and never had it close to coming out even in panic situations. That said I wouldn't just set it on the countertop It's great to have dinner ready when you arrive late at a campground and if you use a liner bag in the crockpot there's almost no cleanup.

We use crockpot cooking in the sink all the time while driving. Put a rubber band on to hold the lid on just in case.

My wife and I never thought of doing this the many times we've traveled with the generator running for the roof air. Never thought we could be cooking our end of the day meal while on the road! We like the idea and are planning on doing it the next time we're on the road.

we do the same , that is use the crock pot in the sink .. We do have a couple of inverter controlled outlets on the counter .. A towel in the sink for the pot to rest on
eliminated rattles and scratches and possible spills..

Apparently I am highly out numbered on this one. Of course many people also text while driving. So just because they do it doesn't make it safe or the proper thing to do. I hope you all stay safe.

I don't see how food, in a covered pot, in the sink, can be anymore of a hazard than the hundreds of other loose items in the average motorhome.

Personally, I'd be WAY more concerned about the 4 loose 'S & B style' kitchen chairs I see in so many units. Those chairs are there for EVERY mile the unit does, not just the few hundred miles the odd time you use a crock pot.

Yep, realistically if something happens that makes your crockpot setting in a sink turn into a ufo, you probably have more serious things to worry about than the crockpot and hot food.

My DW bought a crock-pot that has latches to hold the lid closed, meant for transporting to dinners, etc., works great sitting in the sink.
We run the genset for power, and for heating or cooling, whichever is desired.

I do apologize to everyone; I was wrong about wattage for a 120V crockpot. It is about 300W.
A 12VDC crockpot draws about 6.5ADC.

All depends on size. I have a small one that draws 60 watts. Just check it out, so that your inverter will power what ever size you have, or buy one small enough to work. I think 300 must be a pretty big one?

Good Lord! So, driving with a crock pot in the sink, is "unsafe"? Wow.

I hope you have tie down latches on every drawer. I hope you do not have a single thing loose in YOUR MH.

The ONLY way a crock pot, IN A SINK, could become a safety issue, is in a head on collision or a roll over. At that point, there are MANY things of a greater concern than a crock pot 20 feet behind me!

I cook all the time in my Peterbilt, with the crock pot set on the floor of the sleeper. No panic stop can make it move. Again, a head on or a roll over would be the ONLY problem. I will have bigger worries at that time!

We also use a smaller Crockpot in the motorhome. One with traditional basic control (i.e. - a 3 position switch - not electronic). Runs just fine off the MSW inverter. ~12 amps on high setting. If not driving the solar runs it with charging capacity left over
