New Bounder Owner question?

We are new to the Fleetwood brand. Just purchased a new 2018 Bounder 36H. Question about the outside inverter.
Do we shut off the outside switch when storing it? (not hooked to any power)
How about the propane tank?? Does anyone shut off their propane tank when in storage? ( we never have on our previous coach)
Thanks and any other advice is welcome

The inverter is also a charger. No shore power = no charging. If in inverter mode anything connected to a AC inverter receptacle may draw battery power so to avoid that you could turn off the inverter.
For safety reasons I would turn off the propane emergency switch possibly located near the LP Gas fill port. Make a post it note indicating what you turned off, that way you will not have any surprises when you use the coach!

I always shut off inverter. Twice I have had dead batteries, both coach and chassis. First time may have been my fault, the second time it was at Ford dealer and of course they denied doing anything. I also double check that disconnect switches are off. Then check inverter switch again. I have had two more times that I have gotten a low battery light when taking out of a couple weeks of storage and suspect a faulty disconnect switch but haven't proved it.

As far as propane, your choice. Only takes 30 seconds to shut off the valve. The only time I turn my valve off is when filling.
