List of 12V Equipment and Amps

Brand spanking new TT owner here. And new to the forum. Thought I'd jump in with both feet. I have a 2018 Freedom Express 287BHDS. I was wondering if anyone has made a recent list of Coachmen 12V equipment and the amps they draw.

This is in preparation for dry camping. I want to buy new batteries and size them and the inverter based on a list of equipment.

Thanks in advance. Cheers.

just because it's a Coachmen, doesn't mean anything really. nearly all RVs have similar 12v usage.
any TT, no matter the brand, will generally have the same 12v demands.
hardly any TTs come with an INverter. the few that do, are only for the residential fridge. ALL RVs come with CONverters, few come with INverters.

and how are you going to handle FW and gray water, when dry camping?

we have been mainly dry campers, for 25 years. here's our list for dry camping or boondocking:

Honda 2000i inverter generator
6 gallon FW jug
15 gallon tote tank strictly for gray water only
2 batteries
150w inverter for tv and electronic device charging
