Re: Huge Voltage Drain Problem - Ideas?

I put a meter to the batteries and they read .10 amps lower than the Xantrex reads. I disconnected the batteries overnight, reconnected them this morning, and the unusually large voltage draw is gone. I have yet to reconnect the starting battery. There had been water in the bilge, but that is now dry. Could a small gauge bilge pump wire short have drawn -40 amps? Did resetting the Xantrex solve the problem, or is there something else?
