    Should have a cigar lighter plug for 12v power….all you need is a 12v outlet in your bedroom.

    You should be able to buy a 12v power cord. I've only used mine once outside of my house, I used a small power inverter and a battery.

    Depends what kind of CPAP you have…mine doesnt take just any 12v cord..I have to order a special one that costs between $90-150. for now I use the inverter recommended by the company.

    Great question, great responses. This is one of my biggest concerns about getting started boondocking.

    I have a friend who had a similar issue with CPAP and boondocking. She said she increased her battery capacity and solar. Basically you need more watts. 120V x 2.5 amps = 300 watts per hour x say 8 hours in 2400 watts. So you need that plus some. You can look at a set of batteries and what kind of capacity/how many watts can it deliver per hour. You'll find you need quite a robust system. A solar power shop can calculate all this for you. Good luck and post how/if you solved the problem.

    my CPAP manufacturer had a fact sheet on their website for people who travel with their machines. According to it my machine will use 58amps in 8hrs at my settings and if I use all the features. I planned my solar with that in mind
