Winter Storage Class A Coachman

My question is, I am new to RVing and got a 2014 coachman class a. I found an indoor storage place that is temp controlled. He had an RV and has a 50 amp service and heat.

Should I keep it plugged in?
If so he told me to keep the battery switch on so it will keep the batteries charged, is that a good idea?

Any help would be great
Thanks
Marc

Marc, if you leave the battery switch on to keep the batteries charged then be sure to check the water level in the batteries maybe once a month. Depending on the converter your coach has, it could boil the water out after a while. Our coach does that, but then it's a 2002. Yours may have the two or three stage charger that won't have that problem.
