possible problem with my edge

So, Ive got a 2004 F250 that was being driven weekly by my wife because im on a deployment for another couple months.

So my buddy took it on a 300 mile trip with no problems. it sat a week once he brought it back then the batteries died. My wife charged the batteries and started it, drove it. the batteries we over 12.5 when it was parked. Its got a new alternator and 1 new battery. she went to start it again a few days after being driven and boom- 9.5v she said my EDGE juice with attitude CTS screen was staying on when she tried to start it. I havent every seen a parasitic draw happen out of nowhere before. I know my info is limited, but i can only FB my wife and shes no mechanic.

just wondering if anyone has had a problem with the tuners causing a draw?

The other battery is bad which will bring down the good battery

Replace the other battery with the same as the replaced one

I'd rather be fishing

I was going to have her get it charged and have the batteries re-tested. The alternator **** out 2 days before i shipped out and i replaced it. at the time, both batteries were tested and were good. but i understand that **** happens lol.

Well, my passenger battery was bad. The driver battery was on the tender for 4 days. It started at 3.7 and is now at 2.8...... So I'm pretty sure there's a big drain somewhere. I won't be home for 2 more months so my wife will install the new passenger battery and disconnect the driver side until I get home to troubleshoot it.
