Battery loss while on vacation

Hey all --

Just wanted to report what I observed when we were on vacation for nine days. The only thing I turned off was the cabin temperature feature. Sentry mode was on the whole time. We have a 3 LR DM. The car was parked with 67% left and lost about 5.2% of the battery each day. Not too bad I don't think considering the cameras were on for nine days straight. I think once it got to around 20-25% left, Sentry Mode turned off automatically to preserve battery.

Welp, that was it! I think I remember seeing people asking about this a long while back so I thought I'd share what our experience was with letting the car sit for a long time.
