It's probably something to do with that, if timing coincides.

Batteries don't tend to go readily, unless they are really pushed to being flat etc.

Circuit testing to find the culprit would be ideal, so I'd test those that you suspect..

You should only see draw at rest from things like alarm, radio, tracker etc.

Good luck, and let us know how you get on. Thumbs Up Watts ÷ Volts = Amps.
Amps X Volts = Watts

So with earth disconnected over night gave it a go today and battery had dropped to 11.5v and won’t turn over. mA drain is 20mA if I did it correctly so don’t think it’s that so I’m going to go with tits battery? Still in warranty so going to give Brookwells a shout and see if they’ll replace it.

Agreed, the battery should never drop to 11.5 V with no load unless it's FUBAR, time for a new one.
