You don't need the generator to run a slow cooker! You can plug into the ac outlet by the television and turn on the inverter. We've done this multiple times. Nothing beats having dinner cooked when you arrive at your camping spot!

I am new to the RV game but have been doing this often recently in the summer months. I don't see a problem with it at all.


It may be illegal in some states or counties because the generator is not subject to tailpipe emissions like the coach engine. I once worked on a commercial vehicle that would shut the generator off as soon as the emergency brake was released. This was all due to tail pipe emissions. If the generator is running while on the highway it has to comply to the same emissions standards as the coach. Personally I don't see the difference between rolling down the highway or sitting at a campsite.

Our TV outlet doesn't work when driving, I would have to get back there and clip the red wire that prevents the power. I have 2015 Precept 35UN, No outlets in the back work unless the generator is running or the shower power is on, the only outlets on the inverter are in the very front of the coach, next to passengers seat and in front inside under the sliding the top.

Having the slow cookers working is a wonderful thing!

I have three outlets that work while driving, at the passenger seat, behind the bedroom tv and cabinet above the main tv on our 2016 Alante. Maybe they changed with the 2016 model year.
