I would seriously suggest eating something the first day you cook on the campfire or else microwave (which could be fresh cooking, or reheating something you pre-cooked at home and put in the freezer the night before then transferred to the RV freezer). Best to use the crock pot after you park and get set up on AC line power.
Set it in the sink.

We have a couple of slow cookers that have latches on the lid that secures it and the crock into the base. They also have simple controls. They are called Stay-or-Go's.

I'd do as 05Crew said and sit it in the sink while moving just as extra insurance and you should be fine.

It sits in the sink so it will be fine. Top is secured too.

I use a 450 watt inverter and a crock pot on low. It is placed into the sink and never had a problem. If it ends up flying somewhere, I have bigger problems than hot food.

That's why I use mine in the truck. Easier to stabilize

My wife found a Saratoga Jack's Thermal Cooker on ebay. Just so food can be cooking while we travel. She absolutely loves it. Look it up on Google or ebay.

My wife loves the slow cooker, I am shocked how little it draws. Usually electric heat stuff socks the juice..

Saratoga Jack's THERMAL Cooker uses no power at all, it cookes thermally. You place food in inner pot, add water, place it on stove top, or on fire grate, Bring water to a boil for 5 minutes, Then transfer inner pot into outer thermal schell. wait 5 to 7 hours (depending on what your're cooking) It cooks without using any TT power. Yes it really works well, cookes while we travel and a great pot roast is ready when we arrive,

I think we got something like that for x-mas this year form my sister... We were not sure how they worked or if they even did.. I cannot think of the name but the boiling water part makes me think it is the same thing.

We tried ours at home first, just to be certain it really worked the way it should. We were pleasantly surprised just how tender the beef roast turned out. Awesome
Happy camping this year.
