Was only saying to Maggie last night that I now need some slow cooker recipes.

Thanks for that.

I ran a test on the slow cooker today, it and my inverter had a draw of 148W with the cooker on high. I ran it for around 3 hours on the high setting just boiling water in it and it drew 33.8Ah.
I would think if I had the solar feeding in it would have no draw down on the batteries.
I am going camping tomorrow for the weekend, if the sun stays out I might see how well it works in the real world.

Over the weekend we went camping. It was just to test all the changes I have done to the battery charging and solar systems on the camper.
We also took the new slow cooker with us to test if we could.
I will give it the thumbs up for us as it worked well, I thought.
The Victron smart shunt showed I started with the batteries at 93% capacity. The weather was not great, as it was very overcast and wet as we got a bit of rain while cooking. With no solar input it looked like around 148w of draw down from the batteries.
About 4 hours later dinner was done, and the batteries had dropped to 86% capacity, Which I thought was pretty good with not having much solar to help.
I did not get a photo of the finished dish, but I did start it with too much stock for the size of the pot, I think. But It did taste good though.

I should note I have 420Ahr of batteries storage but at 86% I still have a bit of storage before the 50% level is reached, which is what I call my lowest level to run the batteries to.

I think I would use it more if the sun was out and getting plenty of solar, but for me it is nice to know that I can use it anytime regadless. Smiley
