An easy way to check for voltage leaks is to disconnect the negative
terminal on the battery, and use a test lamp.  Put one end of the lamp on
the negative cable and the other end on the negative post of the battery.
If the lamp lights you have something drawing current.  That's the easy
part.  Figuring out what it is, is a bit more complicated.   Systematically
removing fuses and unplugging circuits may help determine where the drain

Good luck.
