Storage

I guess this is the first time I have put my new to me DS (2014) into storage in the dark. With inverter off, house and chassis batteries all turned off, there is still a little red light on the TV glowing. This is the light that turns green when you turn it on. Is there a little battery keeping that aglow? I will be back to it in a few days, and yes I can always find the plug or breaker, but should that have stayed on? RV was plugged in, drove to storage and all turned off yet red light still on. Something not turned off?

I am still learning about these Newmar coaches but my guess is your inverter is still on. With my previous Tiffin coach, the inverter was fed off the coach batteries prior to the battery disconnect switch.

That would be my guess as well. Without shore power the inverter should be the only other source of 110V power.
