I had the same problem with my car that sits at long lengths sometimes.
Someone told me at one point that the long battery leads causes excess drain
but I don't know if that is the case.  Regardless, I simply installed a
battery cut-off switch (the kind with a big plastic key you can remove and
take with you) and I have had no battery problems since.  The only problem
is finding a good place to mount the switch... :-)

You should be able to get such a switch at a local auto-part store or I
believe MOSS sells a few different such devices.
