More testing to be done.
remember i had the same issue. parasitic test is not conclusive if you disconnect negative terminal as that will shut off whatever is draining and it wont come back.
In my case as soon as i disconnect the negative terminal to do the parasitic test this will turn the amp definitely off so it wouldnt show up.

Only way is to have the multimeter terminals connected to the battery negative post and the positive while you pull off the battery cable so nothing is disconnected.

thats how I caught the amp too. While that was happening I yanked out 30 amp fuse and it amp draw dropped!

So I placed an on and off switch in the cabin to the 30 amp fuse for the amp.
Now problem is solved in an improvised way!

battery full and health and drain is only 20 miliamps
Can you provide some more details on this, Fuse location and number, where did you put the switch, wire etc, it sounds like the go
