[Amel Yacht Owners] Power draw at anchor
Why don’t you disconnect the battery cables from the batteries if you are trying to isolate them from any drain? I am assuming this is what you are trying to accomplish.
With best regards,

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.
