Are you plugged in the whole time? IF NOT, are you hitting the battery disconnect switch so they are out of the circuit? Otherwise, they will drain due to the LP detector which is always on. OR the converter may be shorting out and draining them. Testing would show this. You would need a meter and I would need to know the make and model of your load center.
