It won't hurt to try. The breaker on the generator will trip if you are drawing too much current.

I would be a little more concerned about a group 24 battery making it through the night.
Just got back from my first outing. Everything worked w/o switching breakers on and off as expected. I was quite pleased.

As to the battery making it, I did really well with it. Had the generator top the battery off till around 9:30 at night. Had the thermostat set to 68 or so (as near as I could tell). I had either 1/2 or 3/4 charge on the battery each morning. The morning I had 3/4 the temps actually got done to around 42 at night. I do have PUGS on my tent ends and Reflectix in the window inserts. Kept things nice and comfy inside w/ no issues. Or condensation (both ends had a little corner opened up, maybe 1.5").

Always good to know when a plan comes together!

tnchuck100 is right. The answer to your question depends on your converter. Assume it will pull maximum amps when the battery is low and see what it's maximum amp draw is. That plus the max from the coffee pot gives you the answer...
