Still had a voltage draw running down the battery By chance, I found that when I shut down for the day, with the top left down, the battery would drain. When I quit with the top left up, I still had good battery in the morning. ( Power Top)

Fairly sure I recall a limit switch setup on the top with a relay in the engine compartment right near the battery.  The fact that the drain goes away with the top up would lead me to look at that system.
