Does anyone know how much current if any is used by the JK BMS when it is turned off with the power button. What I am looking for is winter storage with not charge or discharge. My thought is to turn off the BMS and remove the class T fuse.

I faced that exact question at a cabin I had in Montana. I ended up unplugging the balance harness when I left for the winter, but I always wondered if I could get away with leaving it plugged in.
 
I didn't think about it until I had already left so hopefully all is well. I have seen that they only draw 500mW when running without any outside draws so even if I had left it running it should be fine.
