Hi my name is Robert
Have you verified the climate control switch is OFF? IF that switch is ON it could drain the battery very fast. Per manual on that switch....
During the summer months of high temperatures and
humidity, the metal frame between the freezer and fresh
food compartments may have water droplets forming.
The number of water droplets will increase if the vehicle
isn’t air conditioned during these months.
This refrigerator comes standard with a 12 volt (DC)
climate control that will evaporate the water droplets
when they form.
To have the climate control on, you position the switch
located beneath the top decoration panel that houses the control panel to ON. The climate control can be left on continuously or only used when temperatures require it.
NOTE: The climate control will draw 12 volts DC power
continuously when in the ON position. It should be turned
OFF when a charging source is not available.
Hope this helps, IF you have more questions or concerns please feel free to contact me... Robert
