We had to run our generator twice a day and we only used the fridge and very very sparingly a light here and there and the water pump here and there. It was ridiculous. As far as the battery being dead, the same thing happened to us (SEVERAL TIMES). We called the dealer and they told us that we blew a fuse when lowering or raising the hitch. So we bought a ton of fuses at walmart. This does not seem logical to me to keep blowing it. The fuse is super easy to replace but boy is this battery "thing a pain in the butt". Good luck
This happened to me a few times when I first got my trailer home, speaking of your fuse blowing when raising or lowering the hitch. This will happen if you reach the limit of travel and keep pressing the button. For example, you begin to lower the trailer onto the ball of your hitch and the foot plate raises during this process, but at some point the foot plate can only raise until you reach the limit of travel. If you continue to push the button and your foot plate is all the way up you will overload that fuse and it will blow to protect from damaging the hitch jack motor. Stop before reaching the limit of travel when lowering and raising your trailer and you should never have this problem.
