Parasitic Draw on Chassis Battery

Hi all,
I took a reading on my battery and it slowly crept up for around 10 minutes and finally capped at 689ma. Does that seem pretty normal? Just curious if anyone else has taken the reading on their class c before.

.6 Amps is not much, considering you are powering a few things like your CO2 sensor along with whatever devices are being fed directly from the battery. You could have a light on somewhere too. Have you tried the battery disconnect and then take the reading?
