Not using TT

I've been injured since June 1 , probably not till next may will use it again
I live in DFW area in Texas , I've winterized the TT .
My question is what else do I need to do , slide is in .
I do have a charger on battery on TT
RIGHT now we do have the electric cord plugged in to the TT , We were in it to get some stuff out

Should I leave the cord NOT plugged in all the time or just rely on the battery charger by it self
Thanks

Not sure what a TT is but a trickle charger is fine or take the battery out and keep it warm and charged.

I just check mine once every couple weeks and charge them up as discharged batteries will freeze at -30F or so, hopefully we won't see that, but in upper NY we did.

If the battery charger doesn't have auto float it will over charge and ruin the batteries in a few short weeks. Don't ask me how I know.
Unplug it and charge the batteries a few weeks before you want to use it again. They will not go dead if you are sure all appliances and lights are off. You could disconnect them to be sure of no phantom draw.

I leave mine plugged in all the time. But I know I have a 3 stage built in charger. And I check my battery once a month. And in the past 10 months have only topped up my two 6 volt battery's once.

So unplug it. It won't hurt anything.

Make sure your refrigerator doors are open to prevent smell and mold.
