Ugg, I did!!! I know the difference, somehow I still get those reversed in long winded summaries. I should check my work.

If you have Carbon monoxide detectors, they're wired directly to the batteries as well and will drain them too if not on shore power.

How old are the batteries? Check for load charge.

I would be surprised if this were the case. Wiring directly to the batteries and bypassing isolation switches is the stuff of shade tree mechanics and DIY.

I think I recall reading that this is how the CO sensor is set up though, the intention being that you can't inadvertently shut it off and then not notice. I would presume it should have a fuse, but no switch.

Yeah they have in-line fuses, just like the stereo memory wire(in the engine compartment)

If I leave my boat unattended for any length of time, I pull the fuses.

And if your GFCI trips because of a surge, reset it and all your breakers, they may look like their in an on position, but might not really be.
