Chassis Battery Drain when not on shore power

We have a 1998 TropiCal 6330. When not on shore power there is a 20 milliamp drain on the chassis battery. I've turned off everything I can think of including the antennae booster, but still a draw. I've installed a quick battery disconnect that solves it, but still would like to know what is on that system drawing a little power... any ideas?

power draw

I found that my steps draw power, I pull the fuse out when sitting, also up in front cabinet where that electrical wire plugs in, that powers the winegard selector, it draws power even though it's tunred off, I pull it out.
