Is anyone else having a problem with these 2 units draining your battery.
Mine are running off my starting battery. After a few hours I get low voltage
alarm on the screen.

No, I also put which ever one I'm not using at the time on stand-by specially on the trolling motor out of the water will burn the puck up. My power pole pumps are off the starter to. Do you run AGM or Gel

Are they wired to the battery - or through a switch? Mine do the same thing -battery is fine -12.5+ V. The switch causes resistance sets off the voltage alarm.

I used to have that problem and then I bought a new battery. Now I can run 3 graphs and live wells all day without issues and not have to put anything on standby.

Edit: I do make a few runs during the day. I guess if I was going to be in one area, all day, without using the big motor then I'd suggest using stand by mode.

I had a 24 series interstate and the 12 would drain it by lunch if I left it on. Just switched to a 31DM Optima blue top and can run it all day now.
