The inverter's slide switch (upper right part on the front of the inverter) can be set to charge only, off or automatic on (when the inverter's console switch is turned on). Apparently, there is some parasitic draw on the batteries, unless the inverter is shut off.
I believe another source of battery drain is the LPG/CO detector. It's always on and not fused at the electrical panel.
Thanks for taking the time to answer.
I had it parked for 2 weeks when it went dead.
When you say the batteries run down, are you referring to the chassis battery or the house batteries? I'm aware of the house batteries being drained by the inverted. The manual says ". If the inverter is left in the
ON position, it will continue to draw 1.25 amps." I'm not sure this can affect the vehicle battery.
Without a detailed schematic of the electrical system, I'm shooting in the dark.
