2013 Diesel AWD 2L ECO Sportage.

Every now and again the battery drains and car will not start, use jump pack and starts first time. Example, we left the car a whole week and no problem but leaving it two days recently and it was dead, the other day we also left car for just about 5 hours and it died but it started this morning after two days of non use.
I have checked battery terminals and they are clean and tight, I have used a battery analyser and it reports battery as good although not in its prime as original. Next thing to try this weekend is measuring for a parasitic drain. Problem here is if it is a drain and it is intermittent it would be looking for the needle in the hay stack.

Has anyone else had a similar situation or can you suggest any other tests I can perform?

Sorry Turnup, been away from laptop for a few days. I will also check the ground strap when I get back to car this weekend, if storm Dennis allows.
