Thor Challenger 2015 Battery Troubles

My Thor Challenger won't start after being in storage less than a week. I have everything turned off. Stored In Use. Successfully camped for 10 days prior to storage. Both batteries are completely dead. This is not the first time I have had this problem. I have been constantly having low battery/dead battery problems since new purchase. Any Ideas? thx Mike

Unplugged? There's your problem. Try storing in STORE. Of course if you've killed the batteries several times before they may not have the staying power you need. Best to install a battery disconnect for storing unplugged for any period of time.

EDIT: Sorry, "would not start" has no bearing on USE/STORE switch (normally, unless you have a failure in the cross-connect circuitry). But battery disconnect for chassis battery is also a good idea.
