Electrical usage 2012Crusader 290

I am presently set up at a fulltime site to a 50 amp service, we have not been at the site for two months, the only thing running is the refrigerator, my electric bill is about $70 a month. This seems very high especially with us not being there at all. Does this seem correct?

IMO that seems very high. Electricity on our seasonal site averages about $35/month during the season. We leave fridge running from April 15 to Oct 15. We use LP for heating our water. We do turn off everything when we leave except for fridge including tv booster and unplug our 2 tv's. That parasitic voltage can add up. You might ask the manager to check the power post.
