Storing our Anthem

I am looking for advice on the process for storing our Anthem. We have 110 outlet in the storage unit and I think we can use that to keep the batteries charged. I am more concerned on how to set my inverters correctly and what settings they should be on. We will not be running anything inside the coach unless of course you guys tell me different. As this is our first MH this will be a learning curve for me. What I am mainly worried about is the batteries discharging and damaging them. So all your help will as always be appreciated

Set Shore Max on both inverters to 5A. That will provide up to 10 Amps to your inverters which is plenty to maintain your batteries while nothing is turn on inside the coach. At the same time it will avoid any risk of drawing too much 110V power and thereby tripping the circuit breaker on the line which supplies your power.

MRUSA14 is correct. What you want to see above the door is "charging". Either float, absorb or bulk depending on battery condition when you plug it in. You will also see the amperage of the charge. It will probably be a big number, but they are DC amps so even over a hundred while bulk charging is OK. If you have a Progressive it will show you the volts in, which will be drawn down some depending on the charge rate and, if there is too much draw, it will shut down prior to the circuit breaker tripping. The power in my storage barn is suspect and I have had to cycle the Progressive a few times until the batteries get to the point where the line power could handle the draw. If you start with a full or nearly full charge, there's no sweat.

We have successfully stored ours for a few months indoors connected to a residential outlet. We used the 5A setting on the inverter as suggested here, as well as our portable surge protector. Just in case, we flipped the breakers on the fridge, stove, microwave, and unplugged the basement fridge.

I set one to 5 amp, no.2 to 10 amp; if batteries are charged when stored, it will not trip a standard 15a breaker. my inverters stay on 100% of the time, never shut them off.
don't forget to dial them back up to 30a after removing from storage (assuming you are travelling to a resort with 50a/250v service)
