could be a dead/bad cell in the battery... when charged again to max..load test it first...if ok then look for a draw...pull 1 fuse at a time if the voltage reads more than .5 to 12 volts with everything off.. but i would guess the battery is bad...even after you charge it..

Did you leave anything plugged into the cigarette lighter socket?

No, all the power was off, nothing plugged into the cigarette plug.

The battery also is 1 year old.. baught last year..
