"I judge all of this by the electrical "Mother Board". This shows Battery use > Full , 3/4th's , 1/2 , and on E."

So did the display show "E"?? Any chance the furnace was running when you checked?

You really do not seem to be using the accessories enough to completely discharge the battery. I agree your next trip will tell you more and each successive trip will provide even more experience and knowledge about how your RV works. Count on your friends here on the forum to help any way we can.

When parked I pull the Furrion radio/dvd player fuse, my parents do this to theirs because it wold drain the battery. Mine has been parked for a month now and still has full charge (according to the indicator).

In our 19FBPR the radio/CD/DVD display light stays "on" even when the radio is turned off. I'm not sure how much of a drain this is, but I have pulled the fuse for it if we are parked for an extended time without shore power.

We had WFCO converter problems about a year ago - the lights would flicker and it wasn't properly charging the battery. Replaced the converter and upgraded to a group 27 deep cycle battery. Before we made the change I know that the battery would run down within a week with no appliances on (but the radio "off" but still powered); I haven't checked since as we now have shore power when we are parked (stowed).

Have you confirmed the light on the power jack and the light in the pass-through are turned off? I can't think of any other parasitic draw other than what has been mentioned in earlier posts. We installed the Progressive power management system (with display) and parasitic draw on the 110V line is anywhere between zero and 4 amps (not quite sure how this converts to battery draw); note this is with the fridge on electric vs gas but the WH is off; no lights on.

What I meant was are the positive and negative going to the trailer attached to one battery.

Not the ones between the batteries.

The Radio/DVD player Light is off , unless I turn it on.

But the light for the TV itself stays on when on shore power. Even if it's Not actually turned on.
I'll remedy that real quick. I'll unplug the dang thing. No power draw.

I checked it this afternoon , Full charge for both batteries , but I am on shore power.
I will unplug it and see what , if anything , causes a drain.

All my lights are LED. So they shouldn't cause a fast drain.

I think what nails me , the Furnace. And it's not running long.

Well , hopefully the Duel batteries will make a difference. Lol.
And , if need be , the 12v 20 watt solar panel maintainer.

Trial and Error here. Keep your fingers crossed for me.
I am learning , sloooooooow.

Glenda (may I call you Glenda?), what you are experiencing is a very gradual learning slope, one which could lead you to being a moderator one day. You know; those highly paid, knowledge-filled, masters of the RV trade that keep us all in line. Some of us have learned our lessons with a serious frown on our face. Wanna hear my low-hanging steel cable story? I thought not.....
You might not look back on this and laugh, but you will remember all the ins and outs of the problem and know what to do next time!

Yes , you guys can call me Glenda . This entire situation has been a blasted nightmare from day one. Long story , won't go into it.

Jim , I will never know enough to be a moderator . Lol.

I feel really embarrassed , and down right stupid typing out my post because half of what I'm trying to describe is phrased wrong.
Looking for the right words about this stuff is a pain in the rear end.

So everyone will have to forgive my newbie status of stupidity here.

The thing that is hard , I am by myself , and when you have No one to refer to for assistance on these situations , and trying to answer your own questions about them , is tough.

Glad I can come here and ask my new friends for help.
But when your out in the toolies, and things go sour , you have to think fast for yourself. Hope you chose the right fix-it procedure . Lol

I need a live in mechanic along on these expeditions of mine. Ha ha.

Yes , they appear to be Chuckster57 , then the mechanic/salesman at
LES Swabb tire store , attached 2 cables that cross over to battery 2.
So everything does look correctly.
The cables come from the frame of trailer , attach to Battery .
I Checked this afternoon , both are fully charged.

As folks have mentioned, things will get easier as time goes by. I am sure many facets are completely new to you and what seems like jibberish today will some day mean something. Here's to hoping it all comes together quickly.

BTW, if you like staying in the boonies, I have one motto that I always stick by for stuff like that; "overkill is good"! More battery than you need, more all kinds of everything. When there's no one around, and/or it's 35 miles to the nearest pavement and 70 to the nearest town - you want to have more than enough "stuff" to hopefully prevent any unpleasant experiences.
