Parasitic draw is normal on newer vehicles, if your wanting to find a battery draw you need to disconnect a battery cable, positive or negative it doesn't matter, put a test light in between the cable and battery post, if you get a bright light you have a battery draw, if you get just a slight glow then that is a normal parasitic load, to locate a battery draw from there you need to electrically disconnect the alternator, if the light goes out then you have located the problem, if it is still on then remove the fuses one at a time noting where each one was until the light goes out then find what is on that circuit and rep[air or replace the component that is bad, then replace the fuses. Most clearance lights are wired into the headlight switch circuit for the running or park lights. HTH

Much appreciated but I suspect the short is with the clearance lights and I'm trying to avoid testing each fuse one by one. I just can't find any documentation that clearly identifies the clearance lights with any specific fuse. Thanks again for your answer!!

There won't be a specific fuse, it will be with the park light circuit fuse.
