Yes, it is a lot. I have a Tri Metric battery monitor and I can read the current draw of anything in the rig, down to .01 amps. I have records of the information.

Why would you leave it on standby? I would leave it off and only turn it on when I wanted to use it.

It is easy to forget you turned it on and the little green light on the panel is hard to see. I have used mine to run the small microwave I have and hours later found that I didn't turn it off.

Also, if you are doing something which needs very little 120 volt power, like charging a cell phone, the standby current loss is there, even though you are doing very little with it. Even the low use of the Television requires the
high loss of the inverter.

As I have written in other posts, I finally got a smaller sine wave inverter (300watts) which not only has a 0.4 amp stand by loss when operating, but it has a search function. When the load is removed the unit shuts down automatically and only sends out a pulse about once a second to see if it needs to turn on again. That reduces the standby loss to only about 20 mA, on average, even if left on all the time.

Any pictures of the mocha colour interior? Golden/cashew is too light for us and black seems like it might feel a little cold/stark.

Espresso leather

How much did Airstream charge to install the espresso leather in your FC 28'?

Purchase price

Has anyone bought from Sutton Rv or Airstream NW in Oregon? How much off MSRP. We are about to negotiate a deal. Thanks.

Options for a new Flying Cloud?

Fwiw, on our 2015 order I was told by Airstream (via my dealer) that anything but cashew or black was not available. My wife would rather have black while I liked the look of cashew...so you can imagine what colour we decided to go with

If black doesn't work out we will do some custom work in a few years.

I'm also interested in how much quieter the ducted air is.
