Veracruz one battery. Thoughts?

The Veracruz comes with only one house battery. It has a residential fridge, induction cooktop, and convection microwave. I'm planning on using the RV for cold weather boondocking camping. I'm thinking the one battery is going to provide very limited operating time without running the generator.

Does anyone have experience or thoughts on what kind of operating time I can expect with the Veracruz on battery power? I do understand that conserving electrical use will improve things. However, the fridge will be running full time and the heater will be running frequently in cold weather.

I'd bet inside of 2 hours the battery will be depleted if you have the refrigerator running via the inverter, the heater running and who know's what else. You absolutely need a minimum of 4 batteries if not more or, run the generator

My Verona has three 8D batteries and I can get 6-9 hours based on load.
One seems futile in my opinion.

I learned that the Veracruz has under 1,000 pounds of cargo carrying capacity. That is a nonstarter for me.
