Otherwise how many days between when you trickle charged and when you left? There are small battery drains in the camper which could add up over time.
Not saying the above if your problem, just a couple of things to check.
I am so used to tent camping I have not even bothered to use the fridge yet. Just seems like almost a waste of propane or electricity when I have everything nicely cooled and kept in my cooler.
The break system will pull power even when it's just sitting there and unplugged from the TV?
I had unplugged it a couple of days at the most prior to installing it. I did not drive with the battery installed, which I guess would have helped since it would have picked up a charge from the TV on that 5 hour drive.
