    I would listen to John (aka- lunaticfringe ) he knows his **** when it comes to electrical stuff. Just to ask how much of a draw are you getting? I know you pulled all fuses but did you pull relays to?

    goose: i just re-read this entire post and you went astray earlier with your testing. for parasitic draw you want to place your mult-meter inline between end of negative cable and negative battery terminal and place it on DC AMPS......NOT DC VOLTS as you mentioned. AMPS will show where the discharge is coming from and the amount. anything under 3/10ths of an amp is acceptable.

    Well thanks everyone for your inputs, I finally found me problems! 1-parasitic draw was a cable that touched the frame and got spit open cause of the vibration. 2- the charge problem was the connector 77 who was in perfect shape but had a bad contact. I just deleted it and used split nuts, heat shrink and electrical tape.

    Thanks again and I learned a lot from you guys!
