We use our motor home on weekends only. No air or hot water.Last month we used 392 kwh of electricity @ $52.00. Lights are 12 volt. Only thing that runs is refrig and inverter. Does this sound high. Refrig is kept on #2 only. Can there be a problem with refrig? With everything off the meter does not spin. They also changed meters. Thank you

I metered my refer a few years ago and it was $30-$35. I now turn it off when stored. If your converter is going to power your 12v , it may not be far off depending on the kilowatt rate. Some CGs will charge a higher rate that they're charged.

Sounds way high to me. When we are in Texas for the winter months our highest usage is under 400 kwh. That's with ref and water heater running 24/7 and air conditioners (3) in use periodically.
If the meter is okay then you have something malfunctioning. Is your motor home a diesel? If so, check to be sure the block heater is off. Turn everything off then turn things on one at a time and check the meter activity. Or purchase a Kil-a-watt to measure each item as you power it up.

Unless you need the inverter to power things while in storage, why have it on? I keep mine off except when I need it for something...which is nothing while stored.
