Dead Crank Battery

We leave our Thor Chateau 2017 29G Class C motor home plugged in, stored right next to the house.
It wouldn't crank at all, so I used the emergency start switch and got it running.
I could not find any appliance that was left on. I did find that the radio in the bedroom would not turn on at all, even when the "truck" motor and/or the generator was running. Could this be a source of battery drain?
2nd question: when you use the emergency start switch are you powering off the RV house batteries?
3d question: any other likely suspects for battery draining?
I realize that my crank battery might need replaced, but would like to explore first.
Thanks in advance. This is a great forum.
