Just wondering if anyone out there with a 400 is using CPAP ?  If so where do you place your machine?

    @BigGrover, there was a discussion about this in the last couple of months. Use the search function and locate it. I do remember that the machine in question was too big to fit in the cubby under/next to the bed. So anyone out there got info? Good luck.

    BigGrover, I was wondering if you have any more info on using a CPAP in a [email protected] 400.  We get our new one as soon as we get our tow vehicle. The cubby by the bed looks like the perfect place, but its not deep enough so I am thinking some modifications might have to be made. And it needs 120 volts. I am wondering if I should get the inverter so if we have to run overnight on battery we will have AC as well.

    We don't boondock so use the 110 power outlet..  So far I have used my Resmed without the humidifier.  When I separate it from the humidifier it fits perfectly in the cubby.  I will probably drill a hole so I can put it in the closet with the humidifier attached and run the tubing and power through the hole for extended trips.  One of my mods was shelves in the closet and there's plenty of room under the first shelf.

    I am concerned about my wife stepping on it if we put it on the floor.

    I use a Resmed in my 2015 [email protected]  There are various ways to accomplish things and I have a small 300 watt pure sine wave inverter that I use when boondocking or when I stay in Arizona for the winter.  I avoid using the humidifier and am fine without it.  I have a 10' extension cord thatIve used at various times but also have a cigarette style plug that I plug the inverter into and place the CPAP unit to my side and closer to my feet to allow some slack in the hose and comfort.  I do fine without the humidifier and as long as the 12 volt DC wiring is heavy enough the inverter should operate fine and without chirping and shutting down.  It's always a good idea to test things out before heading out on the road as undoubtedly problems will crop up late at night and put you into a sleep panic mode 200 miles away from home.  They do make a 12 volt DC adapter that will eliminate the inverter if you want to spend a few extra bucks!
