You have to be attached to the land-line AC for the uWave to work. Of course you could use batteries and an invertor but you wouldn't get much time, uWaves are power hogs.

You would need a 2000 watt inverter as well and if you dont have a big enough battery bank you will kill the batteries in no time at all.

Clossan 22743, The things that work with out shore power are all lights, radio, fan on furance and thats it. On propane the refer and oven and stove will work. So bring an old style coffee pot used on the stove if you like coffee.

And without shore power, you'll also have hot water (on propane), exhaust fans (bath/stove) and the water pump for running water.

What you don't have with batteries-only is the air conditioning or fan-only setting of the HVAC system and the microwave. And no power to the wall outlets.

Thanks Guys!! Turned out I didn't use the heater at all. It was cold, but didn't need to turn on Heater. I'm glad I added the second battery, just in case!!
