Default Power draw of Pump/Fridge/Heater 160X

Hi!

I'm working on building a solar system for my 2008 160X and wondering if someone can help me with the running watts (or amps) of the following components. (My trailer is in storage so I can't get to it for a while and hoping someone here has these figured handy??)

Water Pump -
Fridge (in LP mode) -
Built-in Space Heater -

Thank you!!

Well, after scouring the internet, this is what I come up with.... For those who may be going down the same path as me or wanting to size their battery properly:

Consumer | Power draw (Watts) | Hours usage/day | Total power required/day
RM2351 Fridge | 9.6 | 24 | 230.4
Gas H20 Heater | 20 | 4 | 80
suburban NT-16SEQ Furnace - Fan On | 32.4 | 2 | 64.8
Furnace Standby | 3 | 22 | 66
A 12v RV LED light | 0.12 | 10 | 1.2
Bathroom Fan | 97 | 0.5 | 48.5
Water Pump | 60 | 0.25 | 15


Daily Power Requirement (watt hours) 505.9
Days of Autonomy 3
Total Wh 1517.7
System voltage 12
Total Ah Requirement 126.475

I was curious to know how many amps my trailer was drawing, so I bought a Kill-a-Watt device, you plug it in between the shore power and trailer plug.

Then I turned on every single light, fan, power outlet (USBs for charging phones, etc) and it was under 4 amps.

I have 100w solar panels and dual 6v batteries with a 225 amp hour rating. Recently went camping in Utah, off grid, and with every day usage, including a CPAP, we lasted all week on just batteries with the solar charging them during the day. It's nice to know we can do that without worry.

The ONLY thing we ran into was the grey tank filling up quicker than the black, and there wasn't a place nearby to dump... but we made it before it was full.
