A quick search did not turn up anything on this but I thought there were some posts on it. Apologies in advance if I missed them.
My truck has been sitting several days and it appears that it losses about 1 kWh per day as indicated by Est Distance to Empty.
Anyone else seeing this?

That is normal and actually low. Ford has one of the best parasitic battery drains for EVs so far. Telsas lose more and Rivian is having a real issue with this.

Remember, the truck is never truly "off". Systems stay on to monitor and maintain high voltage battery health, keep the 12V battery healthy, etc.

My trucks been basically sitting for the past 7 days at the body shop because of a little dust nib I reported at delivery (taking fucking forever). Body shop ended up repainting the entire tailgate.....

I've only seen a percentage get knocked off. The truck has basically no drain for me.
