What can cause a battery draw?

I know the radio and carbon monoxide detector but I will lose 2 light "bars" in half a day with "nothing on", I think. How long should the battery last with nothing on? No heater, lights, or anything I can find.

I also turn off the antenna booster, but something else draws as mine will be dead after 2-3 weeks of sitting.

Mine (ss289qb) is a little push button on the outlet where the coax connects above the tv. There is a little red light that shows on or off.

Is your refrigerator turned off? It will draw from the battery if not. Also, check to make sure no lights are on. Look in the storage compartments for lights. The CO detector is always on.

Sunset trail 30re, fridge was on propane so should be drawing some but seems excessive.
I will look for the antenna switch/button.

Any electronic equipment, led light whether on stereo or whatever will put a slow drain on a battery amd kl it over time

CO/LP detector, any illuminated switches, radios with clocks, antenna booster, digital thermostats, fridge if on & water heater if on, just ones I can think of off hand.
