Yes, there are number of TT items that may draw down a battery while in storage; LP detector, DVD player, phantom drain, etc..

If you don't have a battery shut off switch, I would either remove the battery or remove the negative cable from the battery post.

I remove the fuse on the battery when I store it. I usually go cammping every 3 to 4 weeks so battery is always good.
