Always looking to prolong useful batteries while dry-camping, our usual mode. '14 Sunseeker 2500TS 2 Interstate size 27, 6 months old.
1. I'm a aware of these users when battery isolator switch is OFF: Refer igniter, propane/CO2 detector/alarm, water pump arm switch if left on, and, so I read here, possibly the BigFoot leveling system (even if all its indicator lights off?) This is besides the obvious stuff if left on by mistake while away. Am I missing anything?
2. I'm considering putting a battery monitoring gauge near the batteries (they're under the top entry step), to avoid having to remove the step to check with hand-held tester. Ideas on this?
On a recent dry-camp, average use, cool weather so several furnace cycles in the morning, constant refer, average water pump use, etc., batteries were down to 40-50% by getup time, each day. This after 2 1-hour generator runs per day. I thought that was pretty puny. So doing a reality check here. Thanks!!
