Thanks. That sounds like a nice benefit.

I did mention that it wouldn't matter when plugged in.
If you accept that the typical propane RV refrigerator draws about 0.5 amp operating current, even though 0.12 amps sounds minimal, it is a 20% increase in consumption. I know many people who would love to avoid a 20% increase in appliance 12 volt consumption when off-grid.
Some of the RV refrigerator units also have a 12 volt heater on the door seal. I know that power consumption isn't a priority with most TT campers. It can't hurt to increase awareness for those who may spend an occasional night without pedestal/shore power. vic
