Cooking/Boiling Vessel FV706656


Operation is possible at any time but normally during stationary mode. For vehicles without a standby generator the power drain needs to be monitored. Dependent upon the type of vehicle, the power supply to the Cooking vessel may or may not incorporate a switch. In all cases, the plug connection to the Cooking vessel is standard push-on, pull-off, with the low power pins shorter than the heavy current pins, to avoid arcing on the make and break.

The top edge is fitted with a performed flexible seal that engages with the cover to form tight joint when the latter is closed and latched. The bottom of the case is closed by a base plate, which has four performed "feet" for mounting.Heating Water & Rations
