Just put a mechanical battery disconnect like a Blue Sea on your batteries and you wont have battery drain problems or have to pull any more fuses

My point is there is already a mechanical On / OFF Turn switch factory installed and built in to the entry wall of my motorhome that is supposed to be shutting everything off! Which is apparently not shutting everything off when it's in the off position.

I have the same issue with a 2013 Leprechaun 22QB. I have a battery tender on the truck battery and just installed one on the house batteries. I gave up trying to figure it out and so did the dealership.

I had the switch shut off, the front Radio off, the 5 Amp fuse that controls the CO2 detector removed and still something is draining the house batteries?? I'm starting to wonder if the coach shutoff switch was wired correctly? Any other ideas and should I remove the other 5 amp fuse that's next to the one that I did remove as well?

Look at your radio in front of the TV. Mine keeps the stations remembered and had the blue background light on even with the battery disconnect switch in off position. It may be directly wired to batteries.
