You'd think that Keystone would take an extra step and reinforce ALA the repair bulletin for that wall section if this is a common problem. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

If you leave the batteries connected you will surely drain them unless you have means to keep them charged even with the Fridge disconnected. Batteries don't just die, they get murdered.

JRogers, Diesel does not increase payload, diesel will typically increase tow rating. DRW increases payload. DRW diesel will have lower payload number than DRW gas. Just to be clear.
