House batteries draining

I recently purchased a 2006 diesel Coachmen Concord which is currently parked in my driveway. The house batteries rapidly drain, even after I use a charger to bring them up to a full charge. This happens even when the switch (for storage) is turned off placing them in storage mode. The only thing I am aware of that continues to have power are the entrance steps - could a problem there be causing the drain? Is there a back flow issue from the shore power cord to the generator that could cause a drain? Otherwise I'm at a loss. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Sorry to hear you are having battery problem. Have you checked the level in the batteries if you have a dry cell that could cause the problem. If that is okay you need to put a multi-meter in line with the batteries and see what the draw is. If it is high there will have to be something drawing the power. Good luck with the problem
