Using a coffee maker when you are driving motor home?

Can anyone tell me if you can run a coffee maker while driving a motorho me? We have a Forest River Lexington and can't figure out how to make a cup of coffee on the road! Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks,

I don't believe most makers will run but you could use the gas stove with an old-fashioned percolator! Click image for larger version

If you run your generator, you can use whatever you want. A lot of people run the generator to use the AC while driving in the summer. The dash AC doesn't cool the motor home at all.

We love percolator coffee and make it in the morning. Fill our carafe and it stay hot until the next day, or its gone.

or you can install a big inverter, if you don't already have one.

Thanks,
Had a 4 cup 12v coffee maker in 1976 which we used on our long trips. Now you can get one of these.

Stanley thermos works for us, but after three hours we're "coffeed out" anyway and switch to something else.
