Norcold fridge operation draw on batteries

Learning about our new to us RV. Wondering about the power draw on our Norcold N62x. I would like to run it at home overnight to be cold in the morning for an upcoming trip. While running on LP how much power will the fridge pull on the batteries, assuming that is the only thing running in the RV. Batteries are new.
In our old rv I would plug rv cord into our house (only 15amp breaker) but as long as I didn't have anything else on, wouldn't pop the breaker. That would allow us to run the fridge at night before a morning trip.
Any tips or info would be appreciated.

Almost no draw at all. You could run the fridge for days on LP with no external power hooked up. The only electricity used is the control circuit and the igniter.

Why not run it on electric while your home and save the LP?

You can easily run the Fridge on electric on your home 15amp plug

On AC it draws about 300 Watts, on gas it's about 15W.
