Optimum Dometic 2652 set-up

we have a 2003 Dometic 2562 with the switch to turn power strip off and are new owners. I see the best set-up as running it on LPG with strips off for 12 hours at a time as we are 'bundockers'. is there a more efficient use of my battery power?

Hi ! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined the gang!

We don't do any boondocking so can't help with that. Just noticed you are new on IRV2 and wanted to say hello!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

Dometic 2562 with the switch to turn power strip off.......

By that I take it you are talking about the 'Climate Control' which is an embedded heat strip between freezer and food compartment to evaporate mositure that CAN accumulate in Summer Months/High Humidity.

Yours has an ON/OFF switch so you can turn it OFF and LEAVE it OFF while boondocking because it is a continuous drain on the DC SYSTEM (battery Voltage)
It really isn't a necessity to have it on.....just wipe the frame with a rag occasionally IF water droplets form.
Is it time for YOUR Medication or Mine?
