batteries drain

2014 ZT 250 RB
Park in storage for a week and batteries are drained. All lights off, all other switches are off only light or power draw I see is the radio backlight and the smoke detector. Should I be switching off the breakers when storing?

I agree...get a battery disconnect. Your LPG detector is always on and will drain the battery.

One more vote for installing a battery disconnect switch. Fixed the issue instantly on ours for the weeks in the season we don't camp.

Still need to pull and throw them on a tender during winter tho.

Make sure your tv booster button is "off" as that has drained our battery before.......

Unless you disconnect your battery or use a disconnect switch; your battery will drain. Radio, co2 alarm, etc.
