We use a French Press. Just boil the water, put grounds in the press, pour water in, wait four minutes and voila☕️!

I had one like that 40 years ago. Didn't know tey still made them. Had a different name but same idea. It did make great coffee. One of the reasons I bought a Bunn for home.

When I dry camp, the one change I make to the MH to conserve battery power is to disconnect the fridge light and door heater strip. The heater strip in the Dometic fridge draws around 1A/hour and, by itself, will will drain a 100A battery in a few days.

All suggestions above!

As stated, our saving grace was a small generator, a blue 6 gal water jug, and borrowed a grey tote. Worked great for a full week.

Would choose the French press and boiling water coffee method if we had to do again. Bought the Coleman stove top coffee maker. It works but is slow, larrrrrrrge, and heats up the kitchen area (which would be good on a cold morning but not on a warm one).

Most important rule, relax and have a good time!
