How do you know it's holding full charge and doesn't have some other problem like a bad cell for instance? I'd take it to an auto parts store and have it tested.

Mike also check to see if your ground for your unit is not grounded out well. If you had the battery/batteries in your trade-in unit and put it or them in your new unit it may be that it has bled down because of the ghost draws that are on the battery/batteries even with the battery kill switch turned on. I have two batteries in our unit and would not run just one because there is to much draw on one battery in the new Montana's. I'd take your battery out and have it checked. You may have a dead cell in also.

Install a Victron BMV-712 battery monitor with bluetooth and can see what is happening all the time and see the history and this is more accurate than a light panel
