2013 Battery Drain

I have a 2013 CRV EXL with 63000 miles, purchased new in Jul 2013. The OEM battery was replaced at about 41 months, which according to this forum, is about normal. Replaced with an AutoZone 51rs, 500CCA (5yr Warranty), in Nov 2016. Now in Dec 2019, the battery is dead twice in two weeks, the first time from listening to the radio for 10 minutes in ACC mode. The second time after a 30 minute stop with no drain at all on battery. I live in SC, so frigid temperatures are not in play here.
I've seen posts here about an AC relay being bad causing parasitic drain, so I figured for $9 at NAPA, I'd give it a shot. Remove cover on engine compartment fuse box, and criminy, all greek. Can't figure out which is the AC relay. From the two pictures, can someone please identify the AC relay for me? Thanks a bunch in advance.

Just kidding with the above.

I can't read the inner cover on your picture, but the best thing to do would be to obtain a voltmeter and measure current draw. Remove fuses one at a time and tell us which circuit is the culprit.
