I think the propane/CO monitor may be 12V as well.

You're right grantsoo, I didn't think about that, another phantom load. So if I collect all these "phantom" loads (fridge status lights and ignition, CO & smoke dectectors, radio/microwave), I'm guessing maybe 3/4amp DC load? I'm sorry if I'm getting too techy, it's just my nature being in the HVAC field many years. I'm very familiar with AC loads but not so much with DC loads.

I was told by the dealer that the battery would last 30 days under the phantom loads and if I happened to leave the antenna boost on - 3 days.
I forgot the antenna boost on once and after 3 days I was down to 1/4 on the battery guage.

You may want to consider a small trickle charge solar panel as well.
