House Batteries Bypass Switch to IN USE & Chassis Batteries Bypass Switch to STORAGE?

With our Coach parked year around next to our house, we use her at times including using the dash stereo. For the last two years since we purchased, I've had:
House Batteries Bypass Switch to 'IN USE', Chassis Batteries Bypass Switch to 'IN USE'?

I think the generator uses the Start/Chassis batteries, I better check that sometime.

Today, I switched to:
Chassis Batteries Bypass Switch to 'STORAGE' and kept the House Batteries to 'IN USE'

Any concerns with this config?

I made sure important things like the LP and CM detectors were still on which I already knew came off the House Batteries.

No problem. You turn off the chassis battery and left the house battery connected. In storage most people turn them both off to keep from accidentally killing the batteries by leaving something on.

If your plugged in to shore power, while storing the MH, you may want both " Disconnects " left in the ON position. Any battery maintaining can get to the batteries that way.

If your storing it without power, all off is the best way to keep from discharging your batteries.

I should have added in Post #1, I keep the Coach connected to Shore Power while here at the House.



On this Coach, the Starting/Chassis Batteries do not get charged while on Shore Power unfortunately.

I ordered a BatteryMINDer 12117TC to maintain the Starting/Chassis Batteries while on Shore Power.

I can't even set the House Batteries Disconnect to 'STORAGE' while connected to Shore Power unless I turn off the Coach's circuit breaker for the converter/battery charger (Inteli-Power PD9160A with Charge Wizard option) since it's charging/maintaining those House Batteries.

The 2nd owner replaced/upgraded the original MagneTek 6345 converter/battery charger with the Inteli-Power PD9160A with Charge Wizard option.
