Catalina 400 Power Useage

I just came back from a 9 day trip to Catalina Island. I had a wonderful time and the boat performed wonderfully, as usual, but I want to throw out a question to my fellow sailors regarding power useage. My Adler Barbour Refrigeration is a power hog and I know it but besides the refrigeration, I watch about an hour of T.V. a day and about 2 hours of lighting. Given that, I needed to charge my 2 - 4D House Bank twice a day (approx. 1 hour) to bring the system up to charge. Generally, I would wake up in the morning to find my battery voltage at 12.10 having charged them the previous evening. Does this seem right to all of you out there or do I have some problem I can't figure out?
Thanks,
Michael Froelich
