Hi Larry here. I will need the complete info on the RV. That is an option on most except on the larger Coaches. I can help you to determine if yours have one and possibly point you to the drain, if you like.

any ideas on the drain
Expert:  Larry Welch replied 1 year ago.
A drain is a difficult problem to locate. Which batt(s) are being drained? Is the unit plugged in and to what amps?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
on the control panel it goes from 12 volts to nine volts in a couple of hours and we were not using anything. we were camping no electric sites.
Expert:  Larry Welch replied 1 year ago.
Are you running the gen? Sounds to me that you are running down the house batts. Are you running any 120vac appliances?
Expert:  Larry Welch replied 1 year ago.
A/C, microwave, ect, or are you just running overhead lights, radio ect?
Expert:  Larry Welch replied 1 year ago.
I know these questions are aggravating but they are necessary.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
running gen to charge battery,
Expert:  Larry Welch replied 1 year ago.
Both, batteries from the house and the chassis require refreshing. Your gen is recharging these. You are "dry camping". The inverter is pulling of the batteries and the inside lights, ect. are pulling off of them. If no input to the batteries is available, they all will die. Your only draw is what you are using. You must replace what you use, if not plugged in. If this has helped you, please take the time to rate the time we have spent together. If you need further info, please contact me. Happy Trails
