Only 3 weeks and it's drained? Sounds like you have something that's draining it. I had that issue when the boat wasn't used for a couple of months and installed a simple battery switch that I turn to "Off" before I put it away. Problem solved.

Disconnect the negative...reconnect it...how big is your spark? The only thing that should be "on" is if you have a motor with a computer that runs it...

Is anything else hooked up to the starting battery? Does it have a stereo like a car? That'll stay on too...

Disconect the neg and run a muliti meter to see what the draw is. Then you can track it down. Let me know if you need a hand.

Did it start doing this since you put on the new trolling motor?

Unplug the Norelco shaver.

Problem solved.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA, sheet, just about pissed my pants.

Sorry , Mark. Bummer on the battery. I noticed if I leave my TM plugged in at the bow it will slowly drain my batteries.

I'd fully charge the battery and take the boat or battery down to auto zone...or O'riely's and have them put a load meter on it to make sure you didn't get a bad battery first...

Probably would be a good idea in the future to put in a switch as Don mentioned in case you ever leave any auxiliary items on...

Did it work properly before you replaced the battery...or is that why you replaced the battery?
