Dometic Door Heater Switch/Battery Saver Install Video

After much dry camping, being miserly on all electrical lighting, radio use etc..
determined the uncontrollable boondocking parasitic draws were eating away the amp hours.

Doing some detailed current draw measurements on these items determined the fridge door heater (always on) and "Use" LED light were at least part of the issue. (Use light LED and resistor mod coming shortly).

Check out the easy install and overwhelming results:

Thank you for posting this and appreciated the video. I have noticed the parasitic draw from my fridge and always wondered why, so I am intrigued by your idea. Have you noticed any condensation or other side effects when the heating element is switched off?
