2011 Revolution battery drain problem

As strange as it may sound I think I may have finally found out why my batteries keep discharging when in storage. Those of you with a like model might try this and let me know what you find.
We arrived home from a 4 day stay and was running the frig on the inverter while traveling. As it was late and the grandkids wore us out at Cedar Point I didn't bother to plug in when we got home. So today I went out to plug in and heard "chattering" from the Xfer switch. Couldn't figure out why it was doing that and went about turning off the breaker to the outlet. I turned off the 2 150 amp breakers in the back of the MH, hit the disconnect switch at the entry steps and noticed that the inverters were still running. Also, the display on the Magnums were on. I pressed the button to turn off the inverters and they went off and were theoretically not drawing any current (could not hear the inverters running).
Should the inverters be able to be powered up with all the disconnects in the off position?
I would appreciate anyone having this model turn off all breakers/power and test to see if the inverters will come on.
Thanks
Ron K.

By the way, still have not been able to figure out why the Xfer switch was chattering. Seems to be working OK.

If your inverter is in off position its off. Mine has on,off, and auto detect.

You may have missed the point of my post. How or why should the inverter be able to come on if all power is shutdown. With the main disconnect off, and main breakers off how could anything get power?

me too

I once had something similar. Turned off both battery switches, but noticed the inverter fan was running. Sure enough, the green 'on' light was lit. I turned off the inverter with the switch on the device and it's been fine ever since.
