2016 Axis 25.2 battery

We are having problems with our Axis 2016 battery running down even when we have "store" switch in use. Anyone else having this or have any ideas what we are doing wrong? Thanks,

You are probably not doing anything wrong. You could spend a lot of time trying to hunt down the loss or simply add a battery disconnect in (like many of us have).

I have a disconnect on both batteries.

Make sure the Trombetta, isolation relay between cranking and house batteries, is wired to draw power from the house batteries not the cranking battery. Ours was wired wrong from the factory and caused the house batteries to discharge faster. For use the problem was solved by moving the Trombetta plus power lead from the cranking side to the house battery side.

If you store you coach were you have power use an extension cord to keep batteries charged, if not install a disconnect.
