Judging by the Engel's running lights, it's only active when the key is in the accessory position or engine-running. That was my reasoning behind thinking of getting it cold ahead of time so it's in "stay-cold" rather than "make-cold" mode once I left the house.

I plan to install a second battery with isolator so I can leave the Engel on after engine shut-down without concern for running my start-up battery dead. For now, though, I'm not keen on letting it drain the battery for long periods of time.

thanks,
