Yes leave a couple lights on. If you discharge extremely slow you may count more amp/hrs compared to when you are actually using the RV. The small draw you post is virtually at rest so the battery scale of voltage is a bit different. Such as 12.06 might be 50% in normal usage but would be only 25% charge in your virtual rest experiment.

I just spoke with the research and development department (me) and it was decided to postpone the low voltage test to prevent unnecessary damage due to sulfation.

We will be having real world testing soon enough..

Thank for the input..
