Batteries dead in less than 48 hours

I have a 2002 F250. My batteries are draining dead in less than 48 hours. I pulled the fuses one at a time, but still had current draw. Before it seemed to take about 4 days now its gotten worse. When I drive the truck everyday, I dont really have any issues. So any ideas? Thanks

Have you had the batteries tested? That's where I'd start for sure. Make sure they are isolated from eachother when they get tested

No not yet. I find it hard to believe they are bad when they charge fine. I know there is a draw coming from somewhere. I did have an amp meter inline at one point and I think it was pulling close to an amp, but, cant remember exactly.

Ya I know what you mean but wierder stuff happens ya know. It's always best to eliminate the "sure things" first. I'd check the alternator too. It has a positive feed and ground so there's always the possibility something is wrong there. Somethimes the simplest thing seems very complex. I hope that's the case for you. I hate wiring issues
