Hmmm. Here is my concern then. I just went out to the storage site to check on it and get a measurement. The battery was pretty much dead. Barely enough power to lift my jack a little. The only thing on that I cannot turn off is the DVD player/radio. It is just the clock but would this be enough to drain the battery over a two week period? If so, how do I resolve this issue without a battery disconnect switch? Thanks.

Co detector draws one amp an hour!
And the only way to disable it is un hooking the battery.
Disconnect battery during storage or install a disconnect switch.

You probably have other parasitics drawing power than you know i.e., propane detector, CO2 detector, smoke detector, carbon monoxide detector, stereo/DVD, etc.
You fix it with a battery disconnect switch between your unit and the battery [s]. Meanwhile, shut off your breaker switches till you can install one OOOOORR disconnect the battery cable.
Your stereo/DVD unit CAN be shut off by a breaker switch in your power distribution panel. They should be marked.

Look under your propane tanks for a big red switch. That's where my disconnect is located.

Our 2015 23bd did not. I added one to the top of the factory battery box. Did the same on our new Cherokee.
