Traveling with a CPAP

Has anyone already found successful ways to do this? Are there machines that are more efficient, inexpensive solar collector/battery options, etc? What about getting supplies?

I contacted the manufacturer of my CPAP and asked them if they had a 12Volt cord for my model. They did. Cost me under 20 biggy. My camper runs off solar and batteries. The CPAP uses only 9 AMPS Per hour. Runs all night as usual and drains very little power from my batteries.

I travel with a Transcend CPAP that has a battery pack and a solar charger - goes anywhere!

This was a question I had as I have a

CPAP No Problem
by: Anonymous

My wife has a Resmed CPAP and they sell a 12VOLT type plug with a converter for the machine. You just plug it into your RV's 12 volt receptacle and you're good to go. We have 2 6volt Costco Golf cart batteries wired in series for our trailer. It takes about 45 min. in the morning with my Honda 1000 to bring the Batteries back up to full charge.

Head board

Before relying on a cpap, make sure to first lift up the head board of your bed 5 inches, and see if that reduces your breathing problem.
