Re: first overnight experience - it's worth asking permission!
We're fulltimers, we had a 12 volt outlet put in the kitchen and bedroom. Using a 500 watt inverter, we always
run either a fan or a Holmes air filter for white noise in the bedroom. The kitchen inverter works for white
noise when we have guests and also will power a can opener or mixer when needed. I also use an inverter by the
passenger seat, when we are on the road, to power my laptop and charge my cell phone. I hope these tips help someone;)
