Parasitic drains bite, you just have to chase them down by either unplugging things one at a time and measure your drain or pull everything and reconnect them one at a time and measure the drain. Ex's are a good bit different, maybe you have two fuse boxes or feed lines and you can reduce the hunt by eliminating one of them. And someone who has an Ex may have some insight on a regular cause of that problem.

Ex's have some sort of security system don't they? If so, they would use electricity all the time and might be one thing to check first.
