will be going on a extended camping trip but the plan right now is to arrive late on night 1 and will most likely be raining. My plan is to pop the hatch a cpl degrees (tie it down so doesn't full open) secure a cpl tarps (magnets and rope) and sleep with feet sticking out back.... but only issue/question is I want to be able to turn car off and not have any lights on or any power draining (have a fan so I don't need anything from car except shelter from rain), my original plan was to disconnect the battery under the hood for the whole weekend. is this I viable option to insure my car will start up at end of weekend while being able to have door(s) open all night/long time? I have never owned a hybrid before and don't want car to run off of battery in back and cause damage to it?

 

thank you in advance for any advice

 

I have a 2015 Hybrid if that make any difference

I think after a while the lights will automatically turn off to keep the battery from running down. :headscratch:  Lock the doors with your FOB.

All of my interior lights turn off after awhile. There's also a button on the ceiling to turn them off. The tailgate lights seem to stay on no matter what. Maybe try to see if there's a fuse specifically for those?

Now that I think about it the other day I left the tail gate open for an hour or so and the lights were all off.
