That's still a significant draw for 2 weeks.

Do you have a main disconnect to isolate the pack from any parasitic draws? (i.e. voltage reducer or charger)

I've gone 6-8 weeks with only a .2V-.3V drop.

And yes, the sleep switch is a must have IMO.

Maybe consider adding an Anderson SB175 disconnect from the main pack leads to your accessories.

I disconnect mine when I know I won't be using the cart for a while and engage the sleep function. Works like a charm

Yes!

I disconnect mine anytime I won't be using the cart for a period and it's worked like a charm.

Although I have wondered about looking into something more like a main breaker or switch to replaced the Anderson connect just for ease of use. I feel connecting/ disconnecting might wear the contacts of the SB175 out prematurely. I haven't looked yet though.
