Dual batteries discharging

Hi all,

We have a 2014 X23B. I added a second battery and it has worked great. I noticed something however that I thought I'd get some wisdom on.

We came back from a trip 2 weeks ago and parked it. At that time the batteries were charged. I came back about 12 days later and the batter charge was down to one light.

It has been super hot here in Phoenix, but the trailer is in a covered storage facility. I know the battery is always "running" the entertainment center and microwave clock but is this a normal occurrence?

No shorts, no lights left on or anything.

You need to unplug the main 30 amp inline fuse by the batteries, when you are not using the TT. There are things that are discharging your battery 24/7 (CO Alarm, Radio electronics, Fridge circuit board..) and yes they will completely discharge the batteries in a few weeks.
