Here's a pic how to. One important thing is when you hook up the ampmeter. DO NOT turn on the ignition key (on). Most meters will only handle 10-20 amps. Turning the ignition may/will exceed that, and will blow your meter's fuse.
Easy way is just to unhook the positive battery terminal and hook the ampmeter in between the "+" post and power cable. A 4 amperage draw does seem alittle high, but in todays electronics it is possible. I will be installing a bigger battery this weekend, so I'll give it a try and give you a reply on what I get.
