Glad your enjoying it. The battery is being charged while your driving and when on EHU. Make sure you turn fridge off 12 v when you stop driving even if only for 10 or 20 mins. Most vans should last 3 days with casual use when stationary I'm usually ready to move after 3 nights anyway

As Phil says your moving about daily and you appear to be watching how you are using the lighting etc ,can't comment any more than you appear to be doing things correctly

Solar is the way to go when summer is here imho
