So does the riptide draw current even when off? I was out switching some batteries and surprised when the leads sparked when moving them off the posts.

Troller is off. Battery meter maybe?

Its not drawing current. You are simply making a looped connection on the battery when you connect or disconnect the terminals. However I do disconnect my troller when I get home since I have had mine come on while sitting in the shop and killed all three batteries.

This may go without saying but make sure you disconnect the positive first. If you disconnect the ground, it will be looking for any available metal to ground itself on.
