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?

Don't know for sure if this helps for the Rivian (haven't tested it). But quit all instances of the Rivian app on your phone(s). That way no queries are sent to the truck and it should remain in sleep mode. I do know that helps with Tesla's. But like others have noticed there's a huge amount of data these trucks are sending back to the mothership on a daily basis. Not sure if there's a way to stop or slow that communication.
