New GT351DS testing after pickup - power drainage

Hi folks, please yell me if what I observed is normal:

we just unpluggeg from shore power after overnight docking. Power meter dropped very fast as soon as TVs are turned on. And a few seconds after I turn on the microwave, power meter dropped 20+%.
