House and chassis ?

If it is both, make sure the aux. battery switch is off on the driver's left panel.
Is it plugged in ? Charger working ? How long does it take to discharge ?

First off Jeff everyone here is there to help you but they will need a bit more info. I'm going to assume you are plugged into shore 120V or on generator 120V and you are finding that when you go off 120V you see a battery drain. This is normal but in a viable RV situation the least an RV unit should expect is 12 hours before recharging. I will ask a few questions here and the guys who really know their stuff will ask more.....here's the questions

1. How old are your batteries?
2. Are you charging your batteries on a regular schedule?
3. What are your dash guages and inverter guages saying?

Some coaches have parasitic loads; that is, something onboad is draining DC power. On my coach it's a video switch and satellite TV recievers I had installed after I bought the coach. If you have a parasitic load, then hitting the master 12 volt cutoff switch to cut all DC power to the coach while you are parked and the coach is not occupied should stop the drainage. It works for me.

On my coach, there is an automatic 3/4amp draw with nothing on. As was said before, there are relays/electric clocks, and switches that stay hot all the time. If you are storing without electricity, you need to put a battery disconnect switch on it.
