wiring autotuner

In my current set-up, I have the SSB and the autotuner directly linked to the batteries. The SSB is off when I am not using it but there is no on-off button at the autotuner. Does the autotuner slowly empty my batteries this way? Is there a better set-up? Thanks!! Arjan

Re: wiring autotuner

You need to put a fuse and a switch in the line to the autotuner. No reason to leave it on when not in use.
