Whats your battery voltage

I am trying to see if I have a battery drain or if I am going crazy. My voltage at the batteries after sitting for a couple day's is around 11.90 volts. Thats with 2 new batteries that I put on the battery tender before I installed them. My question is whats your voltage after a day or two??

Is that what your batteries are? I always heard the battery was at good voltage above 12.50. My friends 99 7.3 sits at 12.75 all day everyday even when he doesnt use it for a couple days . 11.90 is good enough with new batteries? So maybe I dont have a draw.

Your in the same boat I am, NUTS
What makes you think you have a draw, is it the low voltage? Thats what made me think I have a problem. I would like to hear more people tell me what there voltage is, if its around 12.00 then I just put myself through a week of tracing wires for nothing

mine sits for a month at a time and starts right up , so i never have seen the need to check it , i wouldnt sweat it until it seems it doesnt want to start
