House batteries

I have a 2017 Outlaw. I have been stationary and have been plugged in but my house batteries are draining . Is it something to do with the inverter ? I just replaced the batteries a week ago.

Is your use/store switch on? If not, all your 12V power is coming from the his batteries, not the shore power

Your switch may still be in the off position even if the light is on. Anytime you hook to external power the light will be on. Turn the switch on and listen and you will hear a noise which means it is now on. OR if you know how to use a power meter just check the voltage at your house battery then turn the switch on (even if the light is already on) and check the voltage again. You should see an increase in voltage to the battery

Can you rig up a bayonet style battery disconnect switch?
That will definitely stop whatever is draining your batteries; but you'll still have to figure out what the source of the drain is.
