    FWIW~~~~ Here are the adapters for DC that I use for my CPAP:

    I tried them out last night with this 12 volt battery (I use it for a fishing light):

    I made it through the night with no interruption. I'll probably need to recharge daily (with generator). I do plan on installing a DC outlet in my pop-up soon so I can use trailer battery (I am looking for mods on this). I am also planning on purchasing a solar panel to maintain battery.

    Camping trip Results:
    Thursday night worked good (battery was charged before I left)
    Friday night worked good (had charged battery for about 7 hours)
    Saturday did not make it through the night stopped working after 3 hours (had battery charged for about 2.5 hours)

    I am planning on installing a DC outlet in pop-up.
    I am also planning on installing a solar panel to at least maintain battery.

    If anyone could point me in the right direction it would be appreciated.

    Thanks, Brian

    Solar is a good idea. If you have sunny days (and I guess that's all you have in Arizona) you may be able to get that battery to last for three or four nights.

    Also, lots of info in this thread: http://www.popupportal.com/index.php?topic=34182.0
