Thanks for the reply. I checked with the CPAP store and I can get a 12V-24V converter for the CPAP that plugs into a cigarette lighter socket. If I get a power station with enough power, from what I've read, I should be able to get several nights out of the power station before recharge. I can then recharge by plugging into 110V, generator, I have a small inverter one, plugging it into the trucks 110V inverter while we're traveling, or by solar. Lot's of options. And since this will be a rare instance such as loss of power or we end up boondocking in a parking lot/rest area for the night, the power station seems logical. I will eventually upgrade the RV batteries but waiting until it needs to be done. Thanks everyone for your input!

If you turn off the humidifier and heated tubing your machines will draw a lot less power.

I don't use a humidifier nor heated tubing and my machine, which is identical except for that, uses about half the power the DW's does.

Also your pressures make a little difference. If you run at high pressure it uses a little more power.
