Assuming your machine likes the inverter, all you would need is a battery and battery box and charger.

Awesome! Now to figure out where in Seattle I can buy these things. Thanks for your help, everyone!

The wiki article lists a couple of places, and I'm pretty sure they have locations in Seattle.

Be sure to get the battery box. You don't want anything metal hitting the terminals.

Also, you can leave it in your car and just run an extension cord to the tent.

We hit up a Wal-Mart on the way, and I was able to grab a trickle charger and deep cycle marine battery for around $100, hooray! We each had 15 hours of sleep for two nights, and our CPAPs stayed on the whole time. Thank you so much for your guidance! I'm stoked to know that tent camping is totally doable from now on. We used to only try to book yurts or cabins before, which is fine for comfort, but I love sleeping in a tent.

Glad to help!

My wife and I got quite a bit of ribbing from some of the people were were camping with, but in the morning, we were almost the only people who didn't look like the Walking Dead.

prime8,
Very glad to hear it worked for you. Thanks for reporting back.
if you can't decide then you don't have enough data.
