Killed my battery quick...

Hello All,

This past weekend, my family took our BF on a short surf trip.

I had the battery fully charged and switched the already cooled fridge to 12V when we left. By the end of the first day, the battery was pretty much dead. As I usually run the fridge off propane, I'm wondering if this is normal or possible indicative of some issue.

Thanks

It is normal. The fridge draws a lot. 12V is meant for using power from the tow vehicle in transit.
