You went through your pre-storage checklist and made sure all breakers and lights were off but your batteries are still DOA. You even plugged in the RV and charged the battery for a few days to make sure it was topped up before storage. Whatu00e2u20acu2122s going on?
Almost every RV has some sort of parasitic current draw on the 12-volt electrical system. The most likely offenders are the LP gas detector, the refrigerator, and the radio. Even an inverter, although switched off, can have a small current draw. Over time, these seemingly harmless draws can eventually bring even the largest of battery banks to their capacity death. A simple device called a battery cut off switch will prevent this from happening.
