That draw should not run down a healthy battery. Also keep in mind that almost every fuse has numerous circuits so just pulling a fuse normally kills seveal things.
Also consider the method used to test the draw. If you have a low impedance meter in series with one of the battery cables you will get a false reading because you have circuits trying to power up and it takes way more power to power them up than it does to keep them alive but your meter doesn't pass enough currant to power them up..
