Wasn't there a post on how to find out if some on-board device is drawing too much from the battery?
IIRC (really fuzzy memory), it was something simple: a DC light bulb placed between the negative post of battery to the negative ground/chassis. Or use an amp meter. If there is an usual power draw, then pull fuse one at a time to isolate the device that's drawing too much power. I cannot recall the milli-amp allowed when all devices are asleep. (Please correct me or post a link to that post, when found)
