One error in that chart: Converter, depending on make and model, is a variable.. Mine can suck 10 amps easy if the batteries are hungry enough. Or, like yours 1.5 six hours later.

You are correct, and that is a variable that I missed. Always good to know. Of course, the other thing I missed is lights. Not much amps , but it can be the straw that trips that breaker.
