-you are correct, this thread is full of great information, I learned a ton-
I was very conservative, using only the water pump for grey and black water as needed, and extremely limited led light usage. Battery lasted 2.5 half days and was down to 60%. (I don't think it was fully charged to begin wtih) I have since purchased a battery tender and keep that on the battery at home inbetween trips. Hoping it's not too late to extend it's life. My battery is only 65 amp hours, and I have had it 2 years now w/o any inbetween trip charging, so I am not sure how much life it has left. I will see how it performs on the next trip. (I have also purhased a 100W suitcase solar panel for dry camping, so that should help immensley.) If I need to, I plan to upgrade the battery, and maintain it from now on.
