SARV3 amperage idle draw

Hi Coulom,
What should a SARV3 draw from the regulator power, with the on/off switched off. I am drawing .1A confirmed with a clamp on meter on this wire. There is not a solenoid hooked up for 2 bank chargeing, or is its outpu energized. Is this within spec? If so, why? Thanks!!

A clamp-on is generally not very accurate at low Amps. There is probably about 0.03 Amps draw, however. Enough to keep the battery combiner function alive.
