Has anyone done an energy audit for a 2003 Arctic Fox 990

Has anyone already done an energy audit for their 2003 Arctic Fox 990 truck camper?
We have a used AF 990 TC and I nstalled 200 watts of solar (but plan to eventually double that amount to 400 soon) as well as upgrade the 2 FLAs with 2 500 amp hrs of LiFePO4sÖ
and was hoping I didnít have to reinvent the wheel for the standard items (AC, microwave, 3 way fridge, etc,etc)
We also went through and replaced all the bulbs with LEDs already.
So just curious if anyone would have this info already documented and would be interested in sharing it! Tia!

No audit info (yet) but here are some suggestions

I just bought a 2005 AF 860. Assuming they are generally using the same equipment, I am in the midst of finding out how much energy I need as well. Other than the heater and inverter items (microwave, tv, etc), you should be easily run the lights, pump, & fans off 200W solar. you can probably run your fridge as well, but note I think if you run it in auto mode, it will default to propane first.
Another suggestion is to buy a higher end solar panel controller, some models will give you amps in and out (if you wire them properly).
Good luck and be sure to post what you find!
