I take mine off the TT and take it home. I keep it in the garage on a float charger, but I use it for more than just an RV battery. I have an electric winch for launching my RC gliders. Even without that I'd take it home so I can keep an eye on the water levels and keep the float charger on it. It's over 4 years old and still going strong.

We had an Arctic Fox TT from 1998-2014. It was always plugged in when not in use. We would shutdown the refrigerator after winterizing the TT, but left the refrigerator running from spring until winterizing again in the winter. We would leave the air conditioner on with the thermostat set at 85F during the summer.

I guess I should have used a disconnect or at least disconnected the battery all together. Which would have disabled the electric tongue jack preventing the thief from stealing the 7 day old trailer ��

Thieves don't like to take time. Just putting all the jacks down hard and pull the fuse on the tongue jack might slow them enough to make the differnce.

Total noob question, but are you guys talking about getting power to the TT by plugging the 30amp cord into an adapter for a 110 receptacle in the garage (or house)? I want to get power to the TT, but haven't had a chance to look into how...I was thinking of just wiring 30amp service from my box.
