A LED LCD TV will draw less than 50 Watts and your battery bank should be able to handle it with your inverter. For coffee why not use a percolator and heat the water on your cooktop with propane? Using DC batteries through an inverter to run an electric coffee maker make no sense at all. The trick with a percolator on a cooktop is to use a coarser grind and a good grade of coffee. I do this and I drink coffee black and the taste is as good as I get at home with my coffee maker and far better than what I can get at a Starbuck's.

Got my batteries wired in to the existing charging system. Now I have about 300 AH of useable capacity total. That should be plenty for my trailer's 12v equipment. Used all 0 gauge wiring, overkill, but I had it laying around. I did wire in the inverter just in case I need it sometime down the road. My tv is native 12v, so I just need to get the right cable for it I think. All my lights are LED. Probably won't need to carry my generator unless I go longer than a 3 day weekend, or want to run the AC.
