I have two 90AH Batteries and the Ref current draw on DC is supposed to be 15A.

How long should I reasonably expect the camper/ref to be able to run on DC before the batteries are completely discharged?

Sounds like an awesome trip. AND a good truck camper alternative to driving all the way. Tell us more...

We take the ferry quite frequently and will be going again this summer. Since we have the 2-way, it's just turned off. As mentioned earlier, as long as the freezer is full and not opened, items will stay frozen for a long time, and for the fridge, go light on the temperature-fragile items and pick them up when you arrive. If you are worried about the state of the freeze....use a thermometer to help with those decisions. We have yet to have problems, and the ferry temps are usually cool below anyway...unlike the lower 48 sunshine in the desert scenario! Enjoy the trip!
