Northpoint 377 dry camping

What has been your experiences dry camping with the 377? I have 2 of the OEM marine deep cycle 12v batteries. I can see at least 2 consecutive days of "off the grid" camping in the mid July Canadian Rockies ahead. No generator. I may need furnace. Certainly water heater and coffee maker. Maybe microwave. Appreciate any input.

Without solar or a generator, you will be pushing it, even at just two days. If your inverter will even run the microwave, you’ll pull the batteries down fast. If your fridge is the residential, forget about it.

I boondocking often with my 377. I run the fridge and water heater strictly on propane. I unplug the drink fridge in the outside kitchen. I run the generator in the morning while using the microwave and Kurieg. And that’s WITH 300w of solar panels, and four 6v golf cart batteries. The furnace will draw a lot too, especially the fan, as it moves the heated air throughout the 377....
