As far as I know, only the refrigerator was on. Wanting to conserve our batteries, we only used LUMI solar lights, not house batteries. This morning when we went to stow the bed, I hit the lounge switch....nothing happened. I then checked the batteries and low and behold HSE was in the RED zone 11.9V. I started the engine and immediately was able to stow the beds. Now the HSE is at 12.0V. It's a little disconcerting that with only the refrigerator on, the house batteries run down that much. Is this normal? Am I doing something wrong? I was very careful to manage our use of power and yet here we are. I look forward to better understanding the limits of our new 2020 Interstate GT. Thanks in advance for your suggestions.
DennyO, I ALSO have been experiencing this with our 2021 Interstate GL (btw, glad my cross country lessons learned post was enjoyable read
. Similarly, when we are not plugged in, I leave the fridge on under the theory that my solar panels should charge/top up the lithium house batteries each day and the total amp usage of the fridge is minimal so it won't deplete it overnight. I'm still trying to get to the bottom of this and happy to share/compare notes when I figure it out!
