How many amps does your coach draw when idle?

Just installed Magnum 2812 inverter/charger. While going through the remote I noticed the system was using .8 amps with nothing powered (the inverter was off). This seems like quite a bit of power for just sitting....any thoughts?

Refrigerator 12V control panel. Mine is rated at 0.8A when running on propane. Also the propane detector and stereo are small parasitic loads that are always on.

My wifi ranger and external stereo control are both parasitic as well.

Mine draws .2 amps with just the propane detector and the stereo loads.
