This might not apply but a commonly overlooked problem, especially on vehicles that sit a lot, is a dirty battery. Dust, salt, ect... can cause conduction paths that will drain a battery over time. Especially in humid climates.

Get a cheap amp meter and put one lead on the battery then on the frame. If you get a reading. Clean the top of your battery. It has a draw
