RE: Currant draw

normal current drain if the vehicle is parked and everything's locked and powered down according to MB is more or less 0.02 amps. If you had installed additional accessories the drain might be higher, but from what you haid 4.7 amps you do have a current drain. what you can do is to try to remove the fuse one by one and check if the drain becomes lower, if lower you found the source. but to my experience 0.4-0.8 amps fluctuation on the scale is normal.

That's a pretty big amp draw. Check the alternator and starter for problems.
