Opinions Wanted, Skill Set Needed
Today's RV project involved testing my 200 watt crock pot with the 300/700 peak inverter. Now, I do have a great propane stove and oven, which answers the cooking need when boondocking. However, please follow my female reasoning,
I thought, what if I could simmer a soup and simultaneously warm the living area during those chilly spells?
I mean, this thing does throw off some serious heat when its cooking.
In retrospect, that should have clued me in. The longer the cord on a device, I'm told, the more power you lose due to friction. Or something like that.
Bottom line, I gave up on the inverter ever working my crock pot. In order to get a soup for supper, I cheated and plugged it into shore power.
So, is my math wrong or my reasoning? Why can't you run a 200 watt crock pot with a 300/700 watt inverter?
Now, the pure sine inverter was desperately needed to protect my laptop, phone and T-V, so I guess the $38 bucks at amazon.com was worth it. Tonight, I'm watching a movie to see how that goes.
Stay tuned. There is a 30 day guarantee with this purchase.
