A simple battery monitor will keep you informed all the time. Plus, they are educational (...and fun in a nerdy kind of way...) to be able to see exactly how many amps/etc each item is using. I installed these and am happy with them...

Years ago I installed a digital ammeter into our coach's AGM battery system so I can monitor current into, or out of, the coach batteries at all times during charging ... or during discharging as I turn on or turn off any 12V DC and 12V inverted-to-120V appliances. The ammeter is mounted right on the dash of our Class C so I can easily see it when we're driving or camped.
