So basically in order to safely use my cpap while dry camping, I'd have to leave the humidifier off and recharge the battery somehow on the third day. I think Sam would know this, but he's not home and we don't get a lot of time to talk so I often don't get to everything, but can you charge the battery by running the vehicle for a time. And if so how long estimate does it take to recharge one?
Btw, have you ever tried a dental appliance for sleep apnea? They work well in about 60% of the cases, and may be a good option for camping.

I'm really new to this cpap stuff. I've known since I was 30 that I had sleep apnea, but until last year when I went for gastric bypass surgery, I wasn't aware of how bad it had gotten. My sleep doctor told me I have the worst case of apnea she has seen in her 20 years of practice. I actually stop breathing about every 7 - 10 minutes during the night. So we're hoping when I have the surgery and start losing weight it will get better, but until then I'm on oxygen and cpap full time at night. And it's been an uphill battle for me all the way cause I can't get over the feeling of being constricted, it's all in my head but I have a hard time using the machine as long as I'm supposed to.
So, no, I can't use any dental appliance. Besides I can't stand them either, I've tried the ones to stop grinding my teeth and I just can't stand it. This is why I haven't had the gastric bypass yet, the surgeon won't do it until I'm using the cpap full time because there is such a chance of something going wrong during my recovery without it. I just have some mental issues to work through and I'm the only one who can do it.
Sorry for the TMI, this whole issue is a source of great frustration for me.
I decided to get a vintage trailer so I could get out of my house more and see the country. How then did most of the trailer get in my house and the other parts of it get to see the country?

Camping: the art of getting closer to nature while getting farther away from the nearest cold beverage, hot shower and flush toilet.
I've had that Champion for several years now and I like it a lot. I converted it to run on propane and natural gas as well as gasoline. It is not particularly quiet, but not as loud as a lawn mower, and with a 6' exhaust extension, all you really hear is the noise of moving parts in the motor. It is powered by a Honda clone engine, and is still a 'first or second pull' start.
