Cooking and traveling

Hi to All

We have an electric coach, so my question while driving down the road has anyone put something in the crock pot to cook for the day
Is there enough to power while driving that the gen does not come on
Heading south soon and thought it would be nice to throw something in the slow cooker, then supper is ready
Safe travels

We do this quite often. Last trip to Houston, we cooked stew for six hours. Since the engine is running, the batteries were being charged while the crockpot cooked.

The more important thing is to make sure the crockpot is secure.

We put our crock pot in the sink, with towels wrapped around it. By the time we stop, I am STARVING -- from smelling all that goodness while driving.

I have a 2800 Watt inverter so no need for generator.

And that the inverter is turned ON!

We also use ours this way every now and then and my wife found one with a clamp on lid. She thinks it's a Rival but not sure.

We have done the same, we put the slow cooker in the sink while we are driving. This way we don't need to worry about sliding appliances

I just saw one of those with the clamp on lid at Bed Bath & Beyond. Don't remember the brand but you should be able to find it on their website. I suspect other stores carry something similar. I bought a Rival several years ago that included a insulated carrying case for the crock pot. Another really great idea if you go to pot luck gatherings. Don't have the crock pot anymore, but still have and use the carry case.

We do this all the time if we are going to be driving all day. We also put it in the sink with towels wrapped around it. I don't have a all electric coach, so we run the generator, which is good for the generator to exercise it.
