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??

your always going to have a very small draw just because of all the electronic stuff i would do a draw test and see how much tho one of the techies should be able to tell you what the max draw for them is

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
