I will go with the inverter suggestion.. Though it is NOT proper to install an inverter so it powers the whole coach, many do just that. ONE AMP is exactly the parasitic draw from the 120 volt electronics in my coach, (TV, Radio, Home Theater, And all their support boxes)

When next you are not plugged in, AND NOT RUNNING (the main engine) see if the TV works.

Home is where I park it!

When I am not plugged in and not on gen power it shows 1 amp. When the inverter is OFF it shows 1 amp. When the inverter is ON and I turn a coffee maker on it is 1 amp. When I watch the Magnum inverter/charger board and have the inverter ON wiht the coffee maker on it is 11.5 V, when the coffee maker is on I am at 12.5 V. So the inverter is working. The inverter is not behind the system powering the whole coach. As soon as I told the Intellitec tech rep what it was doing he asked if I had turned a coffee maker or something on and if so did the AMP reading change. When i said I had and it didn't he said it is the control board at the breaker panel. Said he sees it all the time.

The LP Detector draws 1 amp shut off in your display area and look for change, its supose to be off the chassis battery not inverter.
