Battery dead after installing backup camera

The two things may or may not be related however my suspicion is that they are. I pulled my Flagstaff out of storage to get ready for camping season. This year I purchased a Furrion camera system for the camper. The model that was for this camper was no longer available, but Furrion recommended the replacement model.



I had to put the camper in storage for a few days. When I went to hook up the battery was dead. I checked the fuses and breakers, all were good. I checked the disconnect switch and it was good. I am wondering if that new camera is draining the battery beyond the capability of the charger.


Anyone on the forum see this behavior before?

Breakers are for 120 volts. Not your problem. Did you check the two reverse polarity fuses? Was the battery disconnect switch on during this storage? Coach plug in to AC during this storage?

The unit was at my house when I installed the camera. I checked breakers and fuses both. Disconnect was NOT disconnected.



Everything was working fine when I brought it home from storage before installing the camera.
