Has anyone had a power cut

Now that we are settled down and living in a house, at this point I don't have a good solution.

We are going to Greece in our Motorhome(RV) for two months, lets hope I can sort something. Will my Machine work in America do you know?

Thank you for your reply. Lynn

I have just had a power failure. The power was off for a little over an hour, but at the time I did not know how long before it would resume. So I spent the night in my easy chair with no dammage done. My real advice would be to purchase a small diesel powered generator. Total you wattage use, then buy OVER WHAT YOU MAY NEED. You may later need an Ox2 concentrator and power it also. Why diesel? The engines last forever. Fuel is never a problem,(used cooking oil may be used in a pinch). RW

You will have to check with your travel agent to find the answer to your question of whether your C-pap may work in Greece,some respiratory equipment have a easy way to change to 50 cycle from 60 cycle, and there are gimmicks that will do the same,does your RV float? How will you get to Greece with it? (curious) P.S. Your RV may not be compatible with Greece's current, nor will your power cord from the RV. Please keep me updated, you have my complete attention.

Ships ship vehicles every day. Was around $1.5k/USD each to ship our cars to a Caribbean island and $1k for the return trip.
I use my PAP machine nightly and I feel great!

Hi Robert, I live in the Alps in France so drive down to Ancona in Italy, from here about 5 hours, then we go on the ferry, it takes about 23 hours and you can camp on board. Lynn

Thank you for your reply. Lynn

Take look at this site HERE .
It shows 240 vac at 50 hz with a two prong plug - round prongs.

You might want to check the info on your machines wall wart/power supply that plugs into the wall. Many are good for 120 vac to 240 vac and 50 to 60 Hz. If so an adapter for the plug would be all you would need.
I would think your biggest problem will be connecting your RV at RV parks.
