Running on batteries

Hi gang, new member here. We have a 2012 29-RES. We are going boon docking for the first time on the 28th. I am trying to find out if some of the outlets would run off the batteries? need to run a CPAP machine and a fan at night.
I have tried the outlets and nothing. Any information would help. Thank you
Greg

No, none of the 110V outlets will work while on battery power. To run it on AC power, you would either have to get an inverter and some additional battery capacity, or run a generator. Depending on the type of CPAP, it may have a battery pack option or be able to run right off of the 12V system, but you'd have to make sure you have enough battery capacity to run everything on the camper's 12V system as well as the CPAP.

If you will be running your Cpap on 12 volts don't use the vaporizer if it has one. The combination air and moisture uses too much DC power and will not last the night on 2 deep cycle batteries.
You can do a search on the forum or use cynjon's suggestion.
