With everything shut down if you still get the drain start removing fuses and taking current reading across the fuse holder. Once you find the circuit you can trace it to a device.

The ECM and radio memory will probably draw 60ma.

RJAY, RGREEN45 - excellent feedback, thank you. I have 4ma drain even with cutoff switch (at battery) in "off" position. What do you think of that! Tom

tom poteat.....Usually there is a stray wire or so to the batteries and shutting off the 12 volt switch doesn't shut down everything. If you haven't already done it, you need to add a TrikLStart or Zantrex Echo charger to your chassis battery so that your chassis is charged by shore power or the generator when parked. This was an issue with Monaco products.

Diplomat Don made a good point.

Also, the disconnect switch itself could possibly draw 4ma. This draw would drain a single 200AH battery in a mere 208 days.
