2014 Georgetown 351 3 Dead Batteries

Not sure why, but this just started happening. To store the coach I kill house switch and walk a way. Couple days later all 3 batteries are dead. I thought the house and the Chassis were separate. I plug into house power and the batteries are too dead to energize the celluloid to start the charging system.
I actually had to put a boost box on the coach to get it to start charging. Help

The LP Leak Detector is wired directly to the batteries as well as the steps. Have you checked the water levels in the batteries? Someone posted before about a draw off the batteries by the power driver's seat but it's been about 1-1/2 years back.

The batteries are good. Is the Lp leak detector wired to the Chassis as well ?

As far as I know, the engine battery is separate from the two coach's batteries. The engine's alternator charges your engine battery whereas your coach has a battery charger that charges the batteries via shore power or generator. You must have something going on other than just the LP detector drawing power from the batteries. If you kill the switch by the door, it isolates the batteries from everything. I would just leave it on and plug into shore power and you shouldn't have any problems. Not sure why your engine battery is dead though.
