It's on order, but they told me they don't yet know what my insurance will require. They said they do whatever the insurance dictates. I know I pay 10%, but of what I'm not sure. So it's just a wait n see...

Remind me again what your expected battery use is intended: emergency power outage or out in the boonies primitive camping. That will make all the difference. Also the expected time for having to run it off battery, and what recharging resources may be available.

Thanks OMMOHY.

Yep, in the boonies, primitive camping. Usually go for a week at a time. We have 2 6v batteries, and normally charge them for about an hour or so a day using a small portable generator. We use minimal power, don't run anything electric except lights, phones, ipads & our fantastic fan. Well rarely, we'll fire up the furnace, but just in the mornings to get the chill out of the camper. Fridge runs on gas but always needs a small bit of 12v supply.

So you are in a camper/caravan and have two six volt batteries probably T100 golf cart bats and are recharging daily. If this is correct then you have it made. Use the 12 volt cord I showed you, plug into a round 12 receptacle/socket and sleep well and prosper Wink
Sounds to me the DME is still messing with you or beyond incompetent. The machine will be as to your Doc's Rx and don't let them tell you otherwise.
I use my PAP machine nightly and I feel great!

While you have been steered away from Apria, the hospital DME sounds like the devil's first cousin. I might be tempted to just go with Apria and know who you're dealing with. Getting an auto 560 should be no big deal.
