It went from 81% to 55% in 17 days after I got back from out of country vacation. Outdoor temperature average was mainly in 50F ~ 75F range with Gear Guard was on, but it didn’t trigger any motion sensed video recording. I just learned I can geofenced Gear Guard to default off at home. What else can I do to improve and lessen the drainage situation?

Are you averse to leaving the charger plugged in? Even the dinky mobile charger on 120 volts would have maintained it over that period.
I think the point of the OP is that there really is excessive energy consumption. Other EVs don't leak as much as this. I love my R1T but this is a big black eye IMO.
