House battery problem

I have a 2011 Serrano. It has been in the storage yard since early November with the battery switches in the disconnect position. The batteries are about one year old Trojen T-105 6 volt batteries. Up until about a month ago they read full when I check the motorhome. Now they read empty. When i checked today the voltage came up to about 3.3 volts on each battery and I get about a 20 ma draw with the battery switch in the disconnect position. Does anyone know if that draw is normal?

I have the batteries out now and I will charge them and have them load tested. Other than a battery going bad what else can be causing this condition if the 20 ma draw mentioned above is normal?

Thanks for any help that is offered.

Unfortunately, very normal. Those disconnect switches leave CO and Propane monitors connected, sometimes other items as well. The only way to get a real disconnect switch is to mount one on the battery post itself or nearby. I have knife switches on my house batteries that disconnects everything but solar charger.
