Battery manage during service work

Dropped off the coach for body repair on Friday
It will be there for a couple of weeks to a month depending on when Monaco sends parts etc.

I charged up the house batteries full and then turned off the battery cut-off
before leaving body shop
I had to leave the engine batteries on since they will have to move the coach in/out

Will i be OK on the house batteries not dying?
Its avg 35F in the night and avg 60F during day

If you had used my body shop guy you would need to be worried. He kept mine for four months. With your guy you should be just fine.

The problem I have with my MH and several others I have seen is that shutting off the main house battery switch does not take power away from everything. I am amazed at what still has power with everything hard shut down. If it was me I would disconnect the negative battery cable just to make sure.

With both my main chassis and house disconnect switchs in the off position I can still start my MH. I get weird dash indications because there is no power for some of the gauges and indicator lights. I turned off my house batteries the other day and got a call that I had a light on in the MH. Sure enough I checked and I had a light on with the battery main shutoff in the off position.
