There are a couple of points here;
1) what do you need from the crock pot the moment you stop?
2) you will need to check some things before you try and do this, the size of the battery you have installed in your coach, that the 12 volt power cable is indeed wired properly to have the TV charge the battery
3) to verify that the alternator is large enough to handle the charging needs of powering a crock pot?
4 You will also need an "Inverter" to make 12 volts DC power 120 volt AC power?
5) A large enough inverter to power the crock pot at full power?
So to answer your question as you see to start with brings many new questions, so i hope this helps you out and in the end Happy Camping

Get an electric pressure cooker and leave the crockpot at home. Cooks so fast and tastes better than the crockpot!

We do love our electric pressure cooker! Fast and Easy. However, it uses a lot more current than the slow cooker does.

I agree, but since you're not "slow cooking" any longer, the OP might be able to delay cooking until they get to a campground with electric hookups.

This might be going to far off track, but does the pressure cooker get the same results of a crock but quicker? I am reading that right?

You have it exactly right. My wife was peer pressured into buying an Instant Pot brand electric cooker. I wish we had one of these years ago. A good 1/2 or more of our cooking is done in it.

Heck, last night she made single-pot spaghetti in it.
