There is a trick i found take the ground off the battery put a test light between the ground terminal and the ground on the battery if the ignition is off the light should be out if it's on pull one fuse at atime until the light goes out then trace back that circuit.....:D:D[cheers]

The bigger the tire the deeper you can get stuck

If you can't find the bat drain you could always put in a bat. master disconnect switch. (Had on on one of my old piece of crap trucks)
