disconnect the battery

If you are parking your camper for a month or more should you disconnect the battery? The last time I disconnected the battery and it was 4 months before it was used, I had to replace the converter. I think that was just a coincidence, don't you?

Disconnecting the battery would have no effect on the converter. Ready for changeout

Disconnecting the chassis battery if it is sitting for 4 months and is not charged on shore power (some do and some don't) I think is a good idea. Keeping it charged is a better idea. Unhooking the coach batteries when on shore power is unnecessary. Keep an eye on the water. In any case it shouldn't damage the convertor unless wires were shorted. If it is sitting for 4 months and power is not available, disconnect all the batteries.
My 2 cents.
Tom
