Default Battery dead after 2 days

I have a 2009 Ram 1500, hemi, Sport. 14000 miles/18 mos old. After sitting 2 days in my garage, the battery was completely drained. Nothing was left on or plugged in to the power outlets. The Dodge garage checked it out and said the battery tested fine as did the charging system. They also used the "long battery test" supposedly required by Dodge before the battery can be replaced. There have been no modifications or work done recently. Any ideas out there?

Did they check for a key off draw on the battery?

Thanks RamTech, I appreciate your comment. I do not know if they tested draw, but I will be asking.

That's what the draw test is for. It will reveal if any electrical components are staying on.
