1999 Rexhall Aerbus?

I have an electrical issue with my coach. Unless I disconnect the chassis battery, my battery is drained overnight and will not start the engine. I was told by a service shop in the area that I need to flip the chassis switch off each time I turn the engine off.

I think this is NOT addressing the true root cause to the battery drain.

Your thoughts, please.

That does not sound right you must have a draw.

My 8D chassis battery remains connected for a month in storage with very little drain.

You definitely have a big draw....or....the battery is toast and will not hold a charge.

JB Also have a 1999 Aerbus and your experience is not normal. I would suspect a battery with a bad cell as Dean noted. There are other possible issues, like a bad alternator or regulator that won't charge the battery adequately, but you need to check the battery first as it's likely the problem.
