Default Trinity - Still Draining Batteries???

I've had my truck for a total of 5 days, its been sitting since Sunday night.

Less than 3 days later, its completely dead.

Trying to figure out what happened...is the Trinity still draining batteries?

I thought this was fixed but maybe not.

I did notice it was acting finicky and not powering on every time I started the truck, so maybe it wasn't powering off.

Or maybe I have the wrong sleep setting?

Help?

My trinity may have drained my battery a few months ago. Hadn't driven it in a week and came out to a dead truck in winter. Now I just don't leave the trinity plugged in. But I have seen the odd post on the diablo sport forums of people complaining of the same thing but diablo sport swears they don't drain enough to kill a battery once they go into sleep mode. (of course if they admitted they did drain batteries then they would have to admit to an unresolved problem)

Have had my trinity for over a year and I leave it plugged in all the time. Only time it was dead was when I came back from a 40 day deployment. So I dont think that it's the tuners, but then again I have a 3rd gen vice a 4th.

Well, I did some experimenting.

The Trinity does shut off if it's in monitoring mode when I turn the truck off.

If the Trinity is in any other mode, it does not turn off when the truck is shut off.

The times I've left my Trinity plugged in, it drained my battery too. I unplug it overnight and for extended periods my truck isn't going to be started.

rpr-that's some good info. I'm going to check that out when I get back home.
