I have not found any, so I installed one myself that wat I could plug in an inverter to run my CPAP machine when I am sleeping in a truck stop or rest area. Similar to this one

We have a 12volt plug (cigarette lighter plug) just before going to the bedroom of our 3011. We plug a small 600 watt inverter in, to plug the CPAP into, when not on shore power or generator power. Works perfectly.

I was able to purchase a 12 vdc adapter cord for my CPAP machine. That way I don't have to use an inverter if I don't have 120 vac available. This is probably a better option because of the inherent power loss in an inverter. The adapter cord is long enough to reach the living room 12 vdc outlet from our bedroom. We don't dry camp so this is only for emergencies when 120 vac is not available.

Not that difficult to add one. Auto parts stores have them and there is 12v running all over rvs, just tap into a line and it's a done deal. Just make sure you wire the ground wire to the receptacle case and NOT the center post.

Do CPAP machines come with a 12v adapter for people who RV or is it an aftermarket purchase?

if they still use a 12volt recpt in the tv antenna area, I would advise hard wiring in a separate heavy metal recpt for the cpap instead of that one for the tv. they are too light of duty...

edit...ive been installing inverters for people. mfgs need to consider this growing market.

Josh, they do not come with a 12 volt adapter with exception of the tiny little portable that is not designed for nightly use. After market adapters are available for some of the older machines. Most of your newer cpap machines are now dc powered and have a converter to go from ac to dc but not all are 12 volts dc. Hope this helps. Some have battery packs available but they are extremely expensive.

Actually, the ones my wife have had were 12v based. The 110v transformers we normally use put out 12v to the CPAP. Therefore, we were able to find 12v utility cords for about $50. This allows us to use them on a 12v battrry, either from the coach or a backup battrry. You have to find the cord v that works with your CPAP.

We prefer the backup batteries rather than drawing down the coach battery.
