25BH DC Power Draw Numbers

Hello,

Today I broke out the new multimeter and ran the Amp-draw numbers on every component I could think of. I will be running the low-quality batteries included by Camping World for the rest of the season. Below are my numbers, I hope it helps someone!

Interesting to me, great detail
Questions

Water pump idle draw .7 amps. There is only a tiny led showing pump on in my trailer. Why would that draw .7?

Are your lights LED or regular bulbs. It looks like the stove fan light must be regular as it has a high draw. But curious about the rest.

I did not know my fridge drew anything on LP gas. Glad to know it for planning. '

Did you measure the draw of the LP/carbon monoxide detector. That one sneaks up on a lot of us. Maybe the major reason to have a battery disconnect.

I just looked over the numbers again, good catch on the pump idle. The lighted switch draws 0.07A, not 0.7. The lights are all LED except for the range hood. I wasnít able to, or wasnít willing to put the work into isolating the gas detector. I just lumped it in with the radio on standby.

I will definitely be adding battery disconnect in the next week. I also need to upgrade from the 2 80Ah batteries from Camping World.
