Just found the specs on the climate control heater for my DM2652. It's rated at 6 watts or 0.5 amp, so disconnecting it will save us 12 amp hours per day. This is a major power savings for us boon dockers!

And, no, I didnít write it or sell it. But, Iíve got it, read it many times, even practiced a few of the ideas. Furthermore, it cannot hurt your pocketbook much.
Enjoy,

Great book, and I am still using my Ample power charger made from their parts.

This was an awesome thread. I was parked at a hotel while doing some business and the battery kept failing every 12-15 hours. I looked this info up, found the larger red wire in the frig lamp housing. Cut it and taped the ends. The battery is holding at 2/3 charge for the last ten hours. Thanks for the tip!

Excellent! Just saved me a lot of hunting for phantom loads and dead batteries.

There might have been a switch you should turn off when on battery.
