Seneca REfer

Has anyone with the residential Refrigerator in their Seneca done a power requirement for the refer when boondocking. Camp many places with no power and wondering power usage. Most new units come from factory with residential refer, not AC/DC unit. How long before you must recharge house batteries? If away from unit for day , will refer stay cold? Thanks

I have an older Seneca with an RV (absorption) refrigerator so I can't cite newer unit's power consumption. But Senecas come with an automatic generator start system that, when enabled, will run the generator as needed to maintain the house batteries. They can even be programmed to observe "quiet time" if in a location where generator running times are restricted.

I know that doesn't directly answer the question, but may be a workaround.
