7 days on a group 24 and you are dead, dead. 4 days and you are down to 50% charge.
I used to think you would get two weeks. Guess not.
Never really did the math before but it makes sense. If you had a 1 amp parasitic draw that is 24Ah per day. Two days boondocking without using any additional power and your low voltage alarms (CO & propane) will start beeping if you are on a regular group 24 battery.
Even 4.5 days on a pair of 6 volts and you will be down to 50% charge.
To me 12 Ah doesn't seem like much, but when you put it in context, you are right. The trailer will kill the stock battery in 4 days without anything else.
Now you have me curious to chase down what the 0.5 Amp idle draw comes from and how much from each thing. Curious if a majority is the CO and Propane or if it is just the electronic gremlins in the electrical system munching away.
