Parasitic drain from radio, CO detector etc. Granted, two weeks is not long, but that depends on the battery. You may want to disconnect the neg terminal or install a battery disconnect.

X2 on co detector, smoke detector, radio they are always using voltage
as suggested unhook battery or install battery disconnect

i suggest doing a search on the subject on the forum, since causes and solutions are discussed constantly. you'll find days of reading on the subject. TriGuy and f1100turbo just about covered it.

also, welcome and you may want to start posting in the Expandable/Hybrid section here at FRF. there's a Roo sub-section there.
be sure to post your year and model of Roo.
lots of help with hybrid-specific issues there.
