Isn't the 0.2 amps from the Link 10 (or equivalent)?
You could switch off the 2 red battery switch going to the house batteries.

We are leaving St Augustine for a month, and I am
trying to get my electric usage to near zero. I could only
get it down to 0.2 amps (as measured by the
Voltmaster/Batman). All breakers are off (at least the ones
I am aware of). I have taken the “permanent” Sailor
24>12 volt transformer out entirely, fuse removed. I then
noticed that the fuel gauge still works. I could not trace
the wires. There seems to be 19 volts at the gauge, but one
of the hot wires comes into a resistor. If I disconnect the
feed, the boat power usage does go down to 0.1 alternating
with 0.2.

Two questions:

Any idea where the fuel gauge gets its power from?

Any idea how to get the amps down to zero?

Thanks as always to all in this group.
