Truck's Dead

Went out to my truck last night and it was completely dead, So I hooked up my ctek charger on it overnight and went out this morning & it's still dead. It seems like something just keeps pulling power and isn't allowing me to charge my batteries back up. Where should I start on troubleshooting? Batteries are pretty much brand new, there die hard platinum's bought them last year so I'm leaning towards something grounding out.

I would disconnect the batteries and get them checked out; most of auto parts stores can help you out. Once you ensure that the batteries are good put them back in and hook up a DMM, good batteries should show 12.6 volts if the volts starts dropping off; you have something that is drawing power at that point I would start pulling fuses to see if you can isolate the power draw
