You have a drain, but obviously you probably know that. Easiest way to troubleshoot will be to remove fuses a couple or a few at a time (paying attention to which you've tried and making sure to put proper ones back in their places) for several nights. When you wake up one morning and it cranks, whichever fuses are out is where you'll find the drain. Then narrow it down one at a time.
