Default 99 Honda CRV Battery Drain Issue

Bought a used honda crv, everything is savvy, but there seems to be a draw on the battery while the car is off. Upon using the multimeter to bridge the ground and pulling fuses, the only one i can find that's drawing is labeled "backup (radio)". What now? I will check radio harness for visual short but after that i'm at a loss. It seems the backup fuse is used as a memory in case of battery loss, maintain cpus and internal clock. any help?
