Default New Battery /Load Tester Has Arrived

My new Solar BA9 has arrived

While looking for a short, it was suggested that I test my battery.
The battery, starting system and alternator all passed as OK, with and without a load on them.
The BA9 also does a ripple test and that passed too.

So that leaves me with no idea, where in the heck, that parasitic power leak that is draining my battery is coming from.

The amps between the negative post and the negative wire are OK with and without fuses.

I have also cleaned the major ground point from the negative terminal to the body of the PT.

I am stumped.
Any suggestions on where I might look next would be most appreciated.
Thanks

What is your battery voltage with the engine running at 2000 rpm?

Do you have a copy of the Service Manual?

If not, I can PM you a link to download it from my Dropbox.

when you make a thread topic title that's completely opposite to what you wanted help with, you only look like someone who can't even help them self.
