That is the norm, either gas or electric.

Most RV batteries live a long and useful life, some are murdered.

Same here. Electric if available, propane if no electric.

Coll off the fridge and cool off the food if possible. Remember R/V fridges don't work well when temps are above 95f and may require add on cooling coil vent fans to aid them.
