I have a 5 cup coffee pot rated at 600 watts - draws 60 amps for 10 minutes, or about 10 amp hours. A 10 - 12 cup coffee pot probably takes quite a bit more.

I know there are other solutions, and I use some of them when dry camping in cloudy weather, but I do love my drip coffee maker!

We have a little 4 cup Cuisinart coffee maker that draws somehwere around 500 Watts I think, We used it lots off of the inverter I wired my self in our 19 ft. I have not used the 1500 watt inverter in our 21 yet , only becasue on the 1 weekend trip so far we had electrical hookups. I am quite happy that on the 21 the outside shower is mounted lower so I won't have to hold the dog up when using it to rinse his feet off.

One of the reasons ours has only been used a couple times in 6 years,

You know, if you guys were willing to get rid of those electric coffee pots, and opt for some better coffee, the electrical draw becomes nil. Save a bunch on buying a big ass inverter too.

Did anybody get the outside screen that drops down from the awning? I am looking to include it on my option list as I think it will give me an extra 'room' outside even when the bugs are out and about.

I have the screen room, but I've only deployed it a couple of times, mostly because where I camp there are not generally a lot of bugs and I carry several cans of Deep Woods OFF!
In this case ( see photo ) we were having problems with wasps. I found that once they were inside the screen room it was much easier to swat them because they couldn't get away.

A couple years ago we rented a class B camper and vacationed north of Toronto for two weeks. The mosquitos were terrible so many nights we were cooking outside with nets over our heads. Once the food was ready we had to rush back inside the tiny camper and eat ....so we wouldn't be eaten! I am thinking, for those inevitable mosquito laden evenings, the awning-net will come in handy.

Mosquitos can be a really big deal in the Pacific NorthWET. But, if you're looking to move them along (to the neighbors or the next county) and don't want to use chemicals.. turn on a FAN. Truly, mosquitos don't fly when there's a good breeze.

I've gone to the Oregon Gathering for a dozen years, we always hope for a breeze.

Those "pinch" fans hooked to the awning arms or other stationery objects will work fine. Honest.

As long as people are commenting on options, what about aluminum wheels? Why would I need them? Or, why would I want them?

Why not, they will increase your coolness factor tenfold.
